Add advanced measurements with AWG plug-ins – FREE for 30 days

Try these advanced measurements with a trial license. (All trials are floating licenses.)

These plug-ins can be installed on the AWG5200 Series, AWG70000 Series, and SourceXpress PC platform.

Node locked licenses let you move to a new PC three times. Floating licenses allow selected users to manage individual licenses.
