Ansoft Designer® SV provides students and early-career professionals with an easy-to-use tool for applying basic circuit theories and techniques while developing their high-frequency engineering skills.
As a functional subset of Ansoft Designer, the commercially distributed design-management environment and circuit simulator for radio frequency (RF) and microwave hardware development, Ansoft Designer SV exposes engineers to the same design environment widely used in the high-performance electronic design industry.
Ansoft Designer SV contains a complete high-frequency linear circuit simulator, schematic and layout design entry, planar electromagnetic solver, design utilities, and post-processing, all integrated in a common environment. Users are able to create and simulate hierarchical circuit designs for RF and microwave applications, such as filters, small-signal amplifiers, matching networks, power splitters and combiners, couplers, and more. All Ansoft Designer SV projects are upward compatible to work with the commercial version of Ansoft Designer.
Successful high-frequency electronic design is tightly related to physical design and component parasitic behavior. With the addition of a subset of the planar EM capability available in the commercial version of Ansoft Designer, this student version provides a sample of Ansoft’s industry-leading electromagnetic solver technology. The planar EM solver lets users generate S-, Y-, and Z-parameters for 2D structures with unlimited stack-up layers (Ansoft Designer SV restricted to under 300 triangles/unknowns).
Ansoft Designer SV allows the simulation of S-, Y-, and Z-parameters, group delay, noise figure, and stability circles of RF and microwave circuits. Utilities include real-time tuning, filter and TRL synthesis, and Smith Tool matching. Post-processing includes rectangular plots, Smith Charts, polar plots, and data tables. Additionally, Ansoft Designer SV comes with a set of real-world examples.
