EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Feb. 12, 2014 – AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, releases a new customer success story that prominently and proudly features how the AWR Graduate Gift Initiative played a role in helping Dr. Dominic FitzPatrick found PoweRFul Microwave, an engineering consultancy specializing in RF and microwave amplifier design.
Upon graduation from Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK, Dr. FitzPatrick took advantage of AWR’s Graduate Gift Initiative program, which gifts a one-year complete AWR Design Environment™ software license to graduates in order to help them jumpstart their careers.
In the year since founding PoweRFul Microwave, Dominic has secured customer design wins that called upon the use of Microwave Office® nonlinear engine to design power amplifiers in frequency bands from VHF to 20GHz. He has also used AXIEM® in the design of planar baluns, as well as presented his novel design works at an AWR/NI event in the UK.
“AWR’s Microwave Office software has been invaluable to me, not only for the nonlinear harmonic balance analysis of power amplifiers, but also for the EM simulation of combiners and couplers,” said FitzPatrick. “The software gives me the confidence to know that when I quote for a project, I can deliver the solutions that meet the customers’ requirements and expectations.”
