Global provider of test and measurement solutions, Anritsu Corporation and AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software announce the expansion of AWR Connected for Anritsu’s signal analysers.
The initial AWR Connected for Anritsu offering consisted of AWR's Microwave Office software and Anritsu’s VectorStar vector signal network analysers. This has now been expanded to team Anritsu’s MS269xA/ MS2830A signal analyser series and MS269xA-002 / MS2830A-02x Vector Signal Generator Option (SA/VSG) hardware with AWR’s Visual System Simulator (VSS) communications system design software.
AWR’s VSS software is a block-diagram based system simulator targeted at radar and communications system design. Combining simulation software and measurements with measurement instrumentation from Anritsu benefits communication systems designers such that complex, digitally modulated test signals (LTE, WiMAX, GSM/Edge, etc.) used to drive end-hardware test via Anritsu’s SA/VSG are the same as those used throughout the design cycle within the VSS software.
This offers designers a design solution with fully integrated simulation software and measurement instruments from component design to end-to-end design, providing customers with the competitive edge needed to reduce cost and time to market.
