AWR Receives Three U.S. Government Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) Grants

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 19, 2009AWR, the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA), today announced that its Simulation Technology and Applied Research (STAAR) division, which develops Analyst™ 3D finite element method (FEM) software, has been awarded three grants for U.S. government-sponsored research projects through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

Two of the grants for FEM EM software development are from the U.S. Department of Energy. One is focused on RF cavity design and the other on current modeling to enable more rapid evaluation and design iteration of next-generation light sources and particle colliders. The third, awarded by the U.S. Navy, focuses on improving emission/ionization algorithms of 3D FEM technology in the 80 to 300 GHz range.

The proprietary parallelized 3D FEM EM simulation and analysis capability embodied in Analyst software is the result of more than a decade of development at STAAR in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Department of Energy, and has been employed to analyze extremely complex RF and microwave structures at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, and Naval Research Laboratory. Now part of AWR’s EM technology portfolio, R&D advancements made possible through the SBIR grants will ultimately benefit the commercial wired and wireless design communities as well.
