Available as an optional module for Microwave Office software, iFilter is said to simplify the synthesis of lumped-element and distributed filters. An intuitive user interface enables users to quickly and easily design filters, connect them directly to circuitry, and make optimization trade-offs. Physical layouts are automatically generated for distributed filters while lumped-element filters are realizable via an extensive library of components. Users can view representations of the filter before exporting it to Microwave Office. iFilter is available for either lumped-element filter only or for distributed and lumped-element filter synthesis with the current release of Microwave Office.
