AdLab - "Advanced EE Lab"

AdLab is a collection of different electronic related programs. It features 13 tools for designing matching networks, transmission lines, transformers, etc. It also calculates RX and TX systems, and performs noise, decibel, transformer and other calculations. As an example AdLab contains a very powerful Smith chart program CSmith. With it you can design matching networks in a similar way to the conventional Smith diagram, but there is a number of new features included elements includes parasitics, also transistors and S-parameter blocks are available, easy modifying, rearranging, loading and saving of circuits, export of S-parameters and the total circuit, performs frequency sweeps and Monte-Carlo analysis, displays power gain or return loss vs frequency, gives more information like stability factor, MAG, available gain, VSWR, etc., transforms mixed parallel and series RLC combinations).

All AdLab tools can also be integrated into the complete information based system for electrical engineering ELEKTA (note: the Elekta tools are more basic). AdLab runs with Windows 95/NT4.0 and higher. It is distributed as shareware for $50 (see ORDER.TXT).

Features : (see also help/pdf file within ZIP archive)

• Automatical synthesis of matching networks
• Visualization of S-parameters, stability factor, MAG, etc.
• Calculate RF circuits via electronic Smith chart
• Noise calculations of amplifiers, oscillators, etc.
• Calculation of RX and TX systems
• Calculates transmission line parameters for different topologies
• dB, amplifier efficiency, VSWR calculations, etc.
• Transmissionline impedance transformations and transformers
• All kind of two-port calculations (S-H-Y-Z-parameters, etc., MAG, k-factor, stability circles, equivalent circuits, etc.)
• Series and parallel connections, star-delta transformation, etc.

Do you simulate using APLAC or SPICE (PSpice, HSpice, etc.)?

Then you can use AdLab very effective! Design your circuit with AdLab and export it. The remaining work can be done in your simulator: Add blocks, perform optimizations, etc. Using the AdLab export functions this works very comfortable, e.g. for LNA´s, matching networks, filters or transmission lines.
