New in the AWR Design Environment
Additional Python resources for AWRDE: Added Getting Started Guides for using Python as a scripting language for the AWR Design Environment software. See Python.
Version Control Improvements: Enables large group design projects by managing AWR Design Environment documents with version control software. The improvements include support for LPF and symbol files, ability to revert back to a specific revision through History dialog box, Design Sync integration support for file-based vaults and module-based vaults and more.
Schematic and System Editor Enhancements: Upgraded the Swap Elements dialog box with filtering capabilities and check boxes that enable preservation of parameters and/or symbols.
New in AWR Microwave Office
The Component Synthesis Wizard and the Mixer and Multiplier Synthesis Wizard no longer require additional licensing and are now available to all users.
Pointer - Hybrid optimizer: New hybrid, or combination of optimizers for simplification of existing methods.
Nimbix Cloud Support: Run Cadence AXIEM® 3D planar EM solver and Cadence Analyst™ 3D FEM EM solver in the cloud.
Clarity 3D Solver Integration: Integration of the Cadence® Clarity™ 3D Solver enables direct simulation of 3D EM structures from within the AWR Design Environment platform.
