Network synthesis is a key component of the synthesis wizards (SWS) module for synthesizing matching-circuit topologies. It helps amplifier designers and front-end system integrators save time developing impedance matching for optimal performance.
The network synthesis wizard works by automatically creating optimized two-port impedance-matching networks. The user specifies the maximum number of sections and types of components to search—the evolutionary algorithm then finds the best circuit topologies and optimizes component parameter values.
Proprietary genetic optimization supports challenging multi-band and broadband impedance-matching designs.
Provides designers with a rapid design start based on multiple possible solutions to achieve their matching goals.
Easy-to-use, interactive interface guides designers through data-driven matching circuit development.
Features at a Glance
- Specify – Designers can interactively develop an unlimited number of networks optimized for noise, power, or matching networks
- Synthesize – A default impedance or the impedance of the desired source/load network can be specified, as well as the desired match frequencies
- Analyze – Optimum reflection coefficients can be specified over frequency and can be provided in the form of load-pull data, network-parameter data files, or circuit schematics
- Integrate – Designers can insert synthesized matching circuits directly into an AWR Design Environment project for (single or multiple) placement(s) within an existing network
