Design and simulate RF systems
SimRF™ provides a component library and simulation engine for designing RF systems. It includes amplifiers, mixers, S-parameter blocks, and other basic blocks for designing architectures for wireless transceivers used in communication and radar systems. You can connect these blocks arbitrarily to form diverse architectures and to simulate the behavior of the RF front-end at the system level.
SimRF lets you simulate RF amplifiers to estimate gain, noise, even-order, and odd-order intermodulation distortion. The simulation of mixers enables you to predict image rejection, reciprocal mixing, local oscillator phase offsets, and DC conversion. You can also simulate frequency-dependent mismatches between linear and nonlinear components in the time and frequency domains.
With SimRF you can model RF systems at different levels of abstraction. The circuit envelope solver enables high-fidelity, multicarrier simulation of networks with arbitrary topologies. The Equivalent Baseband library enables fast, discrete-time simulation of single-carrier cascaded systems.
