AWR Partners with James Cook University Professor Keith Kikkert to Offer eBook on RF Design

Dr. Kikkert Showcases AWR Software and Bridges Microwave & RF Theory with Practical Hands-on Lab Experience

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – June 24, 2013 –  AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, announces a new eBook,  RF Electronics: Design and Simulation,which is available free of charge to students, graduates, professors and industry professionals through AWR’s new  Professors in Partnership™ web portal. Developed by adjunct associate professor  C. J. (Keith) Kikkert of James Cook University (JCU) School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Townsville, Queensland, Australia, the book describes the use of AWR's Microwave Office® and  AXIEM® software to design RF electronic devices for applications such as amplifiers, radar, mobile phones, Bluetooth, and WLAN.

This book is suitable for teaching RF and microwave electronic design in the final year of an undergraduate Bachelor Degree program or as a course in a postgraduate program. Chapter 2 can be used at earlier years of a Bachelor Degree program to teach the principles of computer simulation and design of analogue electronic circuits. All the AWRDE project files used for the material in the book are included with the eBook.

The new eBook is the inaugural offering for AWR’s Professors in Partnership program, which aims to provide engineering students, faculty, and graduates with access to ongoing microwave and RF educational content that enhances and promotes the use of AWR software solutions through e-books, textbooks, and videos. The eBook is the next-generation of Dr. Kikkert’s popular RF and microwave electronic engineering course that has been widely distributed by AWR to universities worldwide over the past several years.

“AWR software offers a unique combination of power, sophistication, and ease-of-use, making it ideal for quickly teaching my students the skills needed to be productive in the real design world,” said Professor Kikkert. "AWR’s help in making my new eBook widely available through the Professors in Partnership program is another step in ensuring that the next generation of designers will be well prepared to meet the challenges of the commercial job market."

“In today’s competitive market, engineering students who bring to their employers experience in real world design and knowledge of the use of design software are ahead of the game,” said Sherry Hess, AWR VP of marketing. “AWR is committed to helping students conquer the learning curve for design software early in their careers, and to that end we are pleased to be able to partner with educators like Professor Kikkert to make available to students, universities, and graduates free materials such as eBooks, online course materials, and tutorial videos that facilitate learning.”
