ADIsimRF™ is an easy to use RF signal chain calculator. It calculates signal levels, distortion, and noise for signal chains with up to 50 elements. Data are presented in tabular and graphical form and can be plotted vs. input power, gain, and frequency. Data can also be exported to Excel.

ADIsimRF includes frequency-dependent device models for most of ADI’s RF components, along with many DACs and ADCs and some transformers and filters from third-party vendors. To assist in device selection, component selection tables are included along with a device selection wizard.
