EL SEGUNDO, USA: AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, and Anritsu Corp., a global provider of test and measurement solutions, announced the expansion of AWR Connected for Anritsu.
The initial AWR Connected for Anritsu offering consisted of AWR’s Microwave Office software and Anritsu’s VectorStar vector signal network analyzers and was announced in January 2009; however today’s news expands this to team Anritsu’s MS269xA/MS2830A Signal Analyzer series and MS269xA-002/MS2830A-02x Vector Signal Generator Option (SA/VSG) hardware with AWR’s Visual System Simulator (VSS) communications system design software.
AWR’s VSS software is a block-diagram based system simulator targeted at radar and communications system design. Combining simulation software and measurements with measurement instrumentation from Anritsu benefits communication systems designers such that complex, digitally modulated test signals (LTE, WiMAX, GSM/Edge) used to drive end hardware tests via Anritsu’s SA/VSG can now be assured that they are the same as those used throughout the design cycle within the VSS software.
Additionally, AWR Connected for Anritsu SA/VSG provides a comprehensive solution of simulation software and measurement instruments that address component design through to end-to-end communication systems and gives designers a competitive edge by reducing cost and time to market.
