New Analog Devices Design Tool Simplifies RF Design and Speeds Time to Market

Press release date: February 15, 2012

o New ADIsimRF Version 1.6 adds support of 29 new RF ICs and data converters as well as various functional enhancements. NORWOOD, Mass.- Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) today announced the release of a new version of its popular ADIsimRF(TM) design tool. ADI's ADIsimRF design tool is the software accompaniment to ADI's complete portfolio of RF-to-digital functional blocks, allowing engineers to model RF signal chains using devices from across ADI's RF IC and data converter portfolio. ADIsimRF Version 1.6 adds support for 29 new RF ICs and data converters as well as functional enhancements. The ADIsimRF design tool provides calculations for the most important parameters within an RF signal chain, including cascaded gain, noise figure, IP3, P1dB, and total power consumption. The ADIsimRF tool also contains embedded data from many of ADI's RF ICs and data converters, which designers can easily access using pull-down menus. Device tables assist in component selection.
