Dr. John Dunn
(advance registration required)
This web-based training session gives RF/microwave software designers a jump start on using the enhanced filter design features in Cadence® AWR Design Environment®. The presenter will demonstrate how AWR® Microwave Office® circuit design software can be used for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave (mmWave) filter design. An example of a distributed filter in board technology will be offered that illustrates tools for filter synthesis, optimization, and yield analysis for manufacturability. Electromagnetic (EM) simulation of the filter will also be demonstrated, and the results compared to models.
Specific highlights include:
- Design sharing and revision control
- Optimization improvements: goals on graphs, the Kapu optimizer, and the optimizer log file
- Filter: custom ripple performance specifications
- Graphing: enhancements to reference markers
Dr. John Dunn is an EM technologist with Cadence and spearheads the AWR training programs. Before entering the commercial electronics industry, Dr. Dunn was a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder, for 15 years. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
