Redefining RF and Microwave Design and Test Seminar

Join us for a Redefining RF and Microwave Design and Test seminar and learn how you can utilize the latest technologies for RF and microwave test, measurement and design, as engineers from NI and AWR discuss how RF and microwave instrumentation is being redefined with an open-software architecture and FPGAs.  Also learn how to introduce real measurements alongside simulation in the design process by integrating graphical system design software with AWR Visual System Simulator (VSS) and AWR Design Environment™.

Presentation Highlights:
• Discover more about the Vector Signal Transceiver (VST) and new instrumentation paradigms
• New features in VSS V10 for improved design accuracy and AWR Design Environment™.

9.00 - 10.25    Redefining RF Instrumentation with FPGA Technology
As test and measurement requirements continue to increase in complexity, new instrumentation paradigms are required. In this session, we’ll discuss how RF and microwave instrumentation is being redefined with an open-software, FPGA-based approach that achieves industry-leading speed, accuracy and flexibility. Among the technologies presented will be the world's first Vector Signal Transceiver, which combines a VSA and a VSG with open-source, FPGA-based firmware for real-time signal processing and control.

10.25 - 10.45    Morning Tea

10.45 - 11.35    Introduction to AWR Design Flow and New Features of V10
This presentation gives an overview of AWR’s unique integrated RF and microwave design flow. The talk also shows features of the V10 release of the AWR Design Environment™. It examines how the new release helps users to improve design accuracy, increase their own productivity and therefore reduce time to market.

11.35 - 12.30    Incorporating Measurements in the Design Flow
Get an introduction to integration between NI LabVIEW and the AWR Visual System Simulator (VSS) software for RF and microwave system design, through theVSS link to NI LabVIEW and explore LabVIEW signal processing capabilities as a co-simulation engine with VSS.
