A new version of the programmable analog EDA tool AnadigmDesigner2 is now free to try. Trial users are given full access to all software features including constructing circuits using pre-qualified, drag-and-drop CAMs for which the user can set parameters. The program's tools abstract the analog design process to the functional level by automating the construction of complex filters and proportional, integral, and derivative controllers. The previous CAM library also comes with three new functions: the transimpedance amplifier, the gain limiter stage, and the gain switch. To download the free trial copy, visit www.anadigm.com.
