Myrtle Beach, S.C. AVX Corp. has developed a new software product library of RF components for Agilent's Advanced Design System (ADS), which is an electronic design automation software tool that offers complete design integration to designers of RF products such as cellular and portable phones, pagers, wireless networks, and radar and satellite communication systems.
ADS features design links for RF architecture applications to generate complex, high-frequency systems and circuit designs faster. The single, integrated design environment provides system and circuit simulators, along with schematic capture, layout, and verification capability to fully characterize and optimize designs.
The AVX ADS library includes Accu-P RF/microwave capacitors (0402 to 1210 case sizes), Accu-L RF inductors (0402 to 0805 sizes), LGA couplers (0402 and 0603 sizes), surface-mount couplers (0603 and 0805 sizes), low pass filters (0603 and 0805 sizes) and 3 dB couplers (0805 size).
Access to the library is available at: www.avx.com/SpiApps/default.asp#rfmicrowave.
