AWR and Antenna Magus Announce Joint Marketing Relationship to Accelerate Antenna Design
El Segundo, California, USA and Stellenbosch South Africa, October 10, 2011
AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, and Magus (Pty) Ltd, developers of the Antenna Magus expert system for antenna synthesis, today announced a joint marketing relationship focused on accelerating the pace of antenna design for wireless-enabled products. The first result of this relationship is AWR Connected™ for Antenna Magus, an interface between the respective firms' software products that expedites antenna design from synthesis with Antenna Magus to full circuit/EM simulation with AWR's Microwave Office™ and AXIEM® software tools.
Antenna Magus provides a database of many different highly-characterized antenna types that can be exported to AWR's EDA tools for EM analysis, integration, tuning, and optimization. This allows Microwave Office and AXIEM software users to integrate antennas into their designs destined for commercial and military terrestrial and satellite wireless communications systems of virtually any type.
"Antenna design is a complex and specialized discipline that is increasingly complicated by requirements for achieving conflicting goals such as those posed by conformal and small form factors. By employing Antenna Magus antenna synthesis software, users of Microwave Office and AXIEM software can integrate antennas with known characteristics within their designs and evaluate their performance," said Sherry Hess, vice president of marketing at AWR. "This can save enormous amounts of time while providing a level of confidence about the antenna's contribution to overall performance as well. We believe our relationship with Antenna Magus adds an important new element to our design suite."
"Antenna Magus has a database of more than 150 antennas, many of which planar," said Sam Clarke, founder of Magus Pty Ltd, "and many can already be used within Microwave Office and AXIEM software with more to come. The new relationship announced today not only expands the designer's flexibility through greater antenna choice but does so in a highly integrated fashion within the AWR Design Environment".
