    DOC_SETS and Variables in Measurement Parameters

    This example uses load pull data to illustrate using a DOC_SET and variables in measurement parameters to control the Measurement data source and variables to control the common measurement parameters.  It also illustrates using the Insert Windows command to quickly build a nice data report.

    Floating Load Pull Markers

    This project builds on the simple example shown above to demonstrate a nifty way to use the new graphing improvement features.  It also uses load pull data and illustrates interpolating load pull data at the impedance from a floating Smith Chart marker.  Test drive the example

    How to Tune

    This video will show users how to tune elements on a Schematic and view the results changing on a graph in real time. It also covers the other features of tuning such as saving states, and freezing traces to compare results.  AWR significantly enhanced the user interface for tuning starting in version 14.

    Matching Network Synthesis Wizard for a Multi-Band Antenna

    This is a dual-band antenna (0.95-1.05 GHz and 3.6-4.4 GHz), which uses the NetMatch measurement to synthesize networks based on lowest possible mismatch loss.  Results are again saved with the project.  You can also re-synthesize, of course, but note that this one does take a few minutes to complete.  Note that NetMatch is in terms of mismatch loss (rather than return loss).  Thus, the goals are set to zero; the wizard is trying to minimize the mismatch loss.  Test drive the project.

    Matching Network Synthesis Wizard for a PA

    This is a load pull based example, in that the goals in the wizard are based directly on measurements for the load pull file in the project.  Results are saved in the project, but you can re-run the synthesis, it only takes a few seconds to complete.  Note that clicking on the various schematics in the User Folder in the project will show the results for that schematic.  Also, the Smith graph with the contours shows the s-parameter result for the chosen schematic.  This uses the S_Term measurement, in order to normalize to 5Ω instead of 50Ω, making it easier to visually judge the results.  The “Performance vs Frequency” rectangular graph uses our “G_LPINT2” measurement to show the results of output power and PAE across frequency.  Test drive the project.

    PCB Import and EM Setup

    This simple example shows the import and EM analysis setup with a small, RF board.  Automatic PCB EM ports added to component pin locations and using component IDs and pin numbers for EM port names are illustrated  The project can be downloaded here: PCB_EM_Setup_Simple.emz

    PCB Import and Simplification for EM Verification

    This example shows the import and EM analysis setup with a small section of a large board.  Smart net selection, layout clip regions, the new shape simplification tools, and automatically adding EM ports are all demonstrated.  Test drive the project.

    Phased Array Generator Wizard

    This simple example illustrates a simple 4x4 phased array. The design starts with defining an EM structure for the antenna elements, calculating its radiation pattern and using them for the phased array. A rectangular lattice design is selected, the RF links are defined and assigned to the array elements, along with the antenna element radiation pattern. A Dolph-Chebychev gain taper is selected to provide an array response with reduced sidelobe level.  Test drive the project.
