ADI has announced a new version of its popular RF design tool, which now supports ADI's Hittite Microwave Corporation products.
ADIsimRF design tools enable engineers to model RF and microwave signal chains using devices from ADI's RF IC portfolio. ADIsimRF version 1.9 adds 190 mixers, amplifiers, switches and attenuators, which are mainly from the Hittite portfolio.
The ADIsimPLL design tool is a comprehensive and easy-to-use PLL (phase-locked loop) synthesizer design and simulation tool. ADIsimPLL version 4 has been upgraded to include HMC703 and HMC704 PLLs as well as HMC830, HMC832, ADF4355, ADF4355-2 and ADF5355 integrated PLL and VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) device models.
ADI acquired Hittite in 2014 and now offers the broadest portfolio of RF and microwave products, covering the entire spectrum from 100 GHz, from the antenna in place to the entire signal chain. The company said that ADI's RF, microwave and millimeter wave product portfolio consists of world-leading data converters, including more than 2,000 high-performance products, from functional modules to highly integrated solutions, development platforms and modules.
