Venice, Florida — Applied Wave Research, Inc. (AWR) has released a Microwave Office® 2007 design software simulation library that features NXP Semiconductor's sixth-generation laterally-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) devices. The simulation library provides power amplifier (PA) and base station design engineers, as well as designers of worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) and wireless broadcasting equipment with AWR- and NXP-proven large signal circuit simulation models.
Today's communication systems require both power efficiency and linearity. Designers need accurate device models to plan and verify power amplifiers. NXP Semiconductors has developed such models for their silicon RF LDMOS technology. The library is available free of charge to active, licensed customers of AWR's Microwave Office and can be obtained by contacting NXP Semiconductor directly at: www.nxp.com/support.
