Analogue design updated

AWR is bringing about change in the analogue design world.

The analogue design process hasn’t changed for 10 years, says Ted Miracco, executive vice president of marketing for Applied Wave Research (AWR). “People wouldn’t use 10 year old digital design technology but, in the analogue world, it maybe the case.”
AWR’s is attempting to bring the analogue design world up to date through Analog Office, ‘built from the ground up’, according to Miracco. He said it attempts to provide solutions to what people will want to do in 10 years. “Instead of approaching this from a digital perspective, we’ve used our microwave expertise.”
Analog Office is built around a unified data model and features models for the time and frequency domains developed in association with Synopsys – an investor in AWR – and is aimed at processes such as SiGe and GaAs. Process design kits are available for TSMC, which Miracco claims as the leader in rf cmos technology, and IBM, said to be the leader in SiGe.
