What's New: V14 Release

The NI AWR Design Environment V14 platform focuses on all stages of RF/microwave design with new features and enhancements to address the challenging component and system performance requirements of next-generation wireless devices, communications and radar systems. 

V14 (inclusive of Microwave OfficeAnalog OfficeVisual System Simulator™, AXIEM, and Analyst™ software) is available now and introduces a new network synthesis wizard for impedance matching of multi-band amplifiers and front-end components, advanced design editing/selection for fast EM verification of imported RF/mixed-signal PCBs, as well as the industry’s first phased array generation wizard for antenna-array design. Additionally, further enhancements in EM analysis, design flow automation, and usability deliver greater productivity and design success to customers.
