Applied Computational Sciences (ACS) develops and sells Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software tools for RF and microwave engineering applications.  ACS's main product is the LINC2TM linear circuit simulator and RF Tools products for the PC and compatibles running under the Windows operating system. 

LINC2 software from ACS offers high performance RF and microwave circuit design, synthesis, simulation and optimization.

LINC2 Features-

bulletAdvanced computer aided design automation at very affordable prices.  LINC2 not only has most of the power and features of simulation software costing thousands of dollars more, but in many cases it exceeds the analysis and synthesis capability of any leading EDA software anywhere, regardless of cost.
bullet Exact circuit synthesis automatically creates schematics for:

        Single or multi-stage linear amplifiers.

        Balanced amplifiers (including multi-stage balanced).

        Push-pull amplifiers (including multi-stage differential amps).

        Low noise amplifiers (LNAs) .

        Design passive components including directional couplers, high Q resonators, inductors and capacitors in microstrip and stripline.  LINC2 provides enhanced accuracy by modeling component losses in the metal and substrate material.


bullet New broadband and narrow band impedance matching network design- Specify Q, phase, low-pass, high-pass, or band-pass response characteristics.  Synthesize a wide variety of lumped and distributed topologies including balanced and single-ended networks.
bulletAdvanced optimization.  Set measurement goals and then invoke the new, easy to use, LINC2 optimizer to quickly realize the desired circuit responses.  A single menu click updates the circuit schematic with the optimized element values!
