EDA vendor AWR Corp. said it has delivered a Microwave Office 2010 design software library for Freescale Semiconductor's RF high-power models.
Freescale indicated that the RF high-power model library includes electro-thermal product models. These include the transistor model (FET˛ and MET), with package, bond wire, and internal matching network effects. The FET˛ and MET models for RF high-power transistors and RF integrated circuits (RFICs) are nonlinear models that predict electrical, thermal and dynamic self-heating effects.
Freescale and AWR said their collaboration resulted in the availability of RF high-power models concurrently for both AWR’s Microwave Office software and Agilent’s Advanced Design Software.
Freescale's RF high-power models are free for use within Microwave Office software. For active, licensed AWR customers, the model library can be found here.
