Anritsu and AWR Expand AWR Connected™ for Anritsu
— Anritsu’s Signal Analyzer and AWR’s Visual System Simulator Communications Design Software Are Now Connected —
For immediate release - Anritsu Corporation, a global provider of test and measurement solutions, and AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, announce the expansion of AWR Connected for Anritsu. The initial AWR Connected for Anritsu offering consisted of AWR's Microwave Office software and Anritsu’s VectorStar vector Signal network analyzers and was announced in January 2009; however today’s news expands this to team Anritsu’s MS269xA/MS2830A Signal Analyzer 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 can now be assured that they are one in 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 "the component design" to "the end-to-end design". This revolutionary solution gives designers the competitive edge they need in reducing cost and time to market.
