Back to Basics
The NI AWR Design Environment platform, inclusive of Microwave Office, Visual System Simulator™, AXIEM, and Analyst™ software, is provided to colleges and universities through a number of programs that support both teaching and public research interests. The software offering encompasses linear, nonlinear, transient, electromagnetic (EM), and system simulation engines, as well as full layout capabilities for students and researchers developing RF/microwave components and communications systems technology.
Experience the industry's most intuitive and user-friendly software, which helps new users learn how to perform all phases of design and providing instructors with a valuable teaching aid.
Develop essential design skills, from schematic entry and circuit design to EM analysis for parasitic extraction and verification, as well as system-level analysis for link and spurious analysis, digital modulation, and end-to-end system design.
All the functionality needed to understand basic RF theory and techniques or work on the most complex new technology research projects.
NI is committed to helping students in electrical engineering learn more about fundamental microwave and RF principles, aided with the use of NI AWR software solutions. Teaching universities are supported with NI AWR software donations for qualified programs, eligibility being contingent on the use of NI AWR Design Environment products in a teaching environment. Available tools cover the full range of our product offerings: linear, nonlinear, transient, EM, and system simulation engines, as well as full layout capabilities.
NI works closely with university professors developing teaching materials for their undergraduate and graduate students. Through student access to software and our university support outreach, NI empowers the general microwave/RF community with guides for developing customized curriculum such as our "Professors in Partnership" program, which enhances the real-world design experience for students and helps professionals increase productivity in this extremely competitive industry where design cycles define success.
As a leading provider of design software to the RF/microwave industry, NI has first-hand knowledge of the challenges faced in developing and adopting new technologies. This know-how is reflected in the capabilities of our software solutions and the experts who develop and support our products, providing world-class expertise to each advanced research and development project.
