Hands-On

Demo Playground

A curated collection of guided-help examples are featured in the KB Demo Playground and showcase new capabilities in the latest release of NI AWR Design Environment software.

Examples

NI AWR software offers more than 400 example projects focused on helping users see what's possible and showing them how to do specific types of simulations. The KB has one page per example, click here, including a description and relevant images.

Design Flows

Explore how specific features and capabilities in the NI AWR product portfolio combine to address a series of design (modeling and simulation) tasks in support of successful product development. Click here

Test Benches

A library of virtual test benches is pre-configured to perform specific simulation measurements and generate related performance graphs. The guided help functionality in NI AWR Design Environment software enables the automatic import of the test bench objects into a current project with the push of a button.


Enhanced Automation

Scripting

Scripting is a sophisticated way to customize the software, enabling designers to automatically perform user-created functions such as manipulating data, changing layouts, and creating custom graphs. For existing Visual Basic scripts, step-by-step instructions are included to create scripts and describe how to access all the information in a project. Click here.

Utilities

A listing of factory-supplied scripts (utilities) provides extra automation of various design management and environment/project control.
