Module Offerings

E-Learning Module User Experience Description
Microwave Office Overview Novice A five-part series designed to get users up and running quickly, from project creation to simulation to measurement graphs.
Harmonic Balance Novice A five-part series explaining how to set up and work with the APLAC HB simulator for nonlinear circuits. 
Layout Novice A four-part series covering layout and how to ensure all is set up correctly. 
VSS Overview  Novice A six-part series introducing spur (RFI) and budget analysis in VSS system design software using concurrent time- and frequency-domain simulations. 
Electromagnetics (EM) Novice A six-part series covering the EM simulation capabilities within AWR Design Environment software.
Analyst Overview Novice A five-part series demonstrating the Analyst 3D finite element method (FEM) EM simulator.
Multi-Technology Advanced A six-part series for advanced users overviewing how Microwave Office software can be used for multi-technology designs.
Advanced EM Advanced A four-part series covering tips and tricks for setting up EM simulation more efficiently and effectively.
Behavioral Models in RF Link Advanced This four-part video series demonstrates how to use the RF modeling capabilities in VSS system design software for RF link budget design and analysis.
Phase Noise Modeling Advanced This three-part video series explains how to use the VSS time-domain engine to measure phase noise.
Planar EM
In-Depth I
Advanced This five-part video is the first in a two-part video series presenting electromagnetic (EM) analysis in the AWR Design Environment. The AXIEM is a 3D planar EM simulator based on the Method of Moments (MoM) and the Analyst arbitrary 3D EM simulator based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). Both EM simulators operate within the AWR Design Environment.
Planar EM
In-Depth II
Advanced This five-part video is the second installment in a three-part video series presenting electromagnetic (EM) analysis in the AWR Design Environment. The second series provides a deeper dive into the concept of the substrate stack-up, material set-up, boundary conditions, and grid control to ensure efficient and accurate EM simulations.
Planar EM
In-Depth III
Advanced This five-part video is the final installment in a three-part video series presenting electromagnetic (EM) analysis in the AWR Design Environment. The final series focuses on drawing layout objects on a substrate defined in the earlier series. Drawing tips are emphasized.
AntSyn Overview  Specialized A four-part series introducing AntSyn automated antenna synthesis technology.
RF PCB Import Wizard Specialized A six-part series demonstrating how to quickly and easily import a layout from commercial layout tools into Microwave Office circuit design software for EM simulation/verification.
