Today (16), Kaideng Electronics (Cadence, USA) announced that it has completed the acquisition of AWR Corporation, a subsidiary of National Instruments. AWR Corporation's technology and talent will advance Cadence's development in 5G RF communications and support system innovation in the aerospace and defense, automotive and wireless markets.
As early as December last year, Kaiden Electronics and NI jointly announced that they reached a final agreement on Cadence's intention to acquire AWR Corporation.
It is understood that AWR is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NI. AWR is a leading supplier of high-frequency RF EDA software technology. Its products are used to design RF and high-frequency components and systems in the semiconductor, aerospace, defense, communications and test equipment industries.
After the acquisition, AWR's professional RF talent team will also join Cadence. At the same time, Cadence and NI reached a strategic cooperation agreement to deepen cooperation and promote innovation in electronic systems in the communications field.
AWR software helps microwave and RF engineers design wireless products for complex high-frequency RF applications. The technology is suitable for the fields of communications, aerospace and defense, semiconductors, computers and consumer electronics, and can help customers accelerate system design and product development cycles, greatly reducing the time from concept to production.
