    Hi, all !

    This question is easy to ask, not to answer, unfortunately !
    I've spent a couple of months trying them for RF purpose, and I really
    dont know how to choose !
    First ADS is a real "all in one", but at huge cost. Ansoft provide a
    good tool with Designer (not tried Nexxim), but the links with Cadence
    is rather thin. Aplac become a little "out of fashion" in many RF
    I'd really appreciate your help, and advices: your personal experience
    in one (or most !) of those softwares could give me new opinions, that
    would be really interesting ! Positive points, negative ones, don't
    hesitate !
    Maybe there's other people asking the same question, so it would be
    useful for the crew !
    Thanks in advance for your help !

    Your question is impossible to answer given how you've told us nothing about
    what you intend to do. Ansoft Designer and ADS are both decent programs (I
    haven't used Aplac), but figuring out which one is best for you is going to
    require that you tell us what you want to do with them... or better still,
    examining each one yourself (I'm sure they'll give you a 30 day evaluation
    license for free) and making up your own mind.

    Hi, Joel !
    Thanks for answering.
    As I've said in the first message, I've used ADS, Ansoft Designer and
    Aplac for a few months, during evaluation periods. So I had the time to
    check them, to find pros ans cons, for RF design especially ! Now my
    question was to know if users of these tools, or one of these, prefers
    "this" one instead of "this" other, due to "this" feature or lack of
    feature !
    My opinion is not unuseful, but I think experts opinion is much
    interesting !
    Thanks again for your interest, and hope you could help me !
    Regards !
