AWR.TV, which AWR launched in January, is designed to be a “one-stop” resource for product information, tutorial presentations, and application-specific discussions about EDA topics and AWR products. AWR has now added a new category for EM that features tutorial video presentations on transmission lines, interactive solvers, EM models, solver types, and a two-part series on ports.
The EM material can be found on the new AWR.TV "Applications" channel under "Electromagnetic" and is presented by Dr. John Dunn, a recognized expert in EM modeling and simulation for high-frequency and high-speed circuit applications. Dr. Dunn is a senior applications engineer at AWR and develops and presents AWR training material to customers world-wide. Before joining AWR, he was head of the interconnect modeling group at Tektronix and a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he led a research group in EM simulation and modeling. Dr. Dunn received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in applied physics from Harvard University and is a senior member of IEEE.
Other enhancements to AWR.TV include applications tracks for MMICs, printed circuit boards, and signal integrity, the option to download all material as iPod and iPhone-compatible podcasts, the ability to search through all the content on the site, an RSS feed that allows subscribers to receive immediate notification of new material added by AWR, a single-click rating system for providing feedback on the site’s presentations, and much more. In addition to the new Applications channel, the content within the existing Product channel has also grown substantially since AWR.TV’s inception, and includes additions to Microwave Office®, Analog Office®, Visual System Simulator™ (VSS), APLAC®, and AXIEM™ software, as well as new interviews with AWR executives and AWR Alliance Partner firms.
“The beauty of AWR.TV is in its ability to provide comprehensive product information, tutorial presentations, and application-specific discussions through concise software demonstrations,” said Sherry Hess, vice president of marketing. "Customer response has been positive and we'll continue to seek new ways to improve this powerful knowledge resource.”
