Powerful Analog & Mixed-Signal Solution Made Easy

High performance, ease of use and affordability have one thing in common: "ICAP/4Windows RF Deluxe." This is Intusoft's advanced analog and mixed-signal simulation solution. ICAP/4Windows RF Deluxe is an extended version of ICAP/4Windows, including simulation capability for RF frequency design. This powerful system includes everything you need to design and verify all types of board, engineering system and IC-level architecture, plus a large collection of RF simulation models. In short, ICAP/4Windows RF Deluxe strikes a perfect balance between ease-of-use, power and affordability.

ICAP/4Windows RF Deluxe includes "SpiceNet," Intusoft's 5th-generation design entry tool. SpiceNet provides a patented layering and configuration system that enables the creation of different schematic layers (example: power supply, signal processing section, amplification circuitry and final output stage), quick wiring between layers, and "highlighted" visibility of all layers from the composite design. Schematic layers can be saved to create different design configurations for debugging initial design functionality, regression testing, production, military standard, PCB layout, etc. Design changes invoked in one configuration are automatically propagated to all other versions, saving time and optimizing design management. SpiceNet even displays operating point data, waveforms, and user-created artwork and text directly on the schematic with a click of the mouse. It also includes footprint information for operation with the Bartels AutoEngineer PCB layout and route software.

High frequency design is readily accommodated with ICAP/4Windows RF Deluxe. It includes features you would expect for RF design such as 2-port analysis, pole-zero analysis and Smith Charts. Add to this a dedicated RF component library of more than 600 devices within the 21,800+ part total. These special devices work with IsSpice4's enhanced algorithms for RF design. Also included is ICAP/4's model building tool, "SpiceMod," which easily creates new models from manufacturers' datasheet entry and provides test circuits for verifying new model performance. Library Manager organizes and archives models, including comparison and search capability.

But this is only the start of a long list of benefits found in ICAP/4Windows RF Deluxe. See if the features listed below clearly make this offering the best choice for your design needs.
