Analog Devices releases free version of RF design tool

Posted on Friday, May 3rd, 2013 in News, software, tools by the machinegeek

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) released a new version of its popular ADIsimRF design tool:

The free 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 1.7 adds a number of new device models along with enhanced support for inter-stage mismatch calculations. The 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 design tool contains embedded data from many of ADI’s RF ICs and data converters, which designers can easily access using pull-down menus to assist in component selection.

ADIsimRF may be downloaded free from Analog Devices. (Registration required.)

    Actually you don’t have to register per-se. You do have to give a small amount of personal information and (of-course) your Email address. But this does not register you for an ADI MyAnalog account.

    As the video explains, you are not limited to only ADI parts with this tool. You can enter your own parameters manually. ADISim is a nice thing to have when optimizing signal chain budgets.
