Analog Devices’ RF design tools extend full support to Hittite Microwave

July 30, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Analog Devices acquired Hittite in 2014, giving it an expanded portfolio of RF and microwave products covering the entire signal chain, from antenna to bits and back, across the entire frequency spectrum beyond 100 GHz. It has now completed adding Hittite products to its design tool libraries.

ADI has released an update of its RF design tools in which the support for Hittite Microwave Corporation products is included. The ADIsimRF design tool enables engineers to model RF and microwave signal chains using devices from across ADI’s RF IC portfolio. ADIsimRF Version 1.9 adds 190 mixers, amplifiers, switches and attenuators, which are primarily from the Hittite portfolio.

The ADIsimPLL design tool is a comprehensive PLL (phased-locked loop) synthesiser design and simulation tool. ADIsimPLL Version 4 has been upgraded to include device models for the HMC703 and HMC704 PLLs and the HMC830, HMC832, ADF4355, ADF4355-2 and ADF5355 integrated PLLs and VCOs (voltage-controlled oscillators).
