Overview of Optenni Lab
Optenni Lab is the leading circuit synthesis software for antenna and RF optimization aiming at efficient assessment and optimization of antenna systems at any design phase.
Optenni Lab features automatic matching circuit synthesis and optimization, antenna array beamforming with active impedance control, and many supplementary assessment tools. Optenni Lab is often used in conjunction with EM simulators, and several links are provided with major EM tools on the market.
The following are typical design challenges where Optenni Lab is used:
ANTENNA EFFICIENCY OPTIMIZATION
Optenni Lab finds automatically matching circuits to find the most robust and economical yet highly performing solution, taking into account several impedance environments, antenna radiation efficiency, component losses and tolerances.
TUNABLE ANTENNA DESIGN
Optenni Lab supports aperture- and impedance tuner design, supporting switches or variable capacitors as the active elements, and calculation of the radiation efficiency as a function of aperture component. Band switching and carrier aggregation modes are specifically engineered as optimization setup goals.
ANTENNA ARRAY DESIGN
Optenni Lab provides extensive analysis and optimization for EM simulated model of antenna arrays, including matching circuit synthesis for optimal total system efficiency, accurate beam scanning range assessment with CDF of obtainable gain, interactive tuning of canonical beam steering coefficients with the radiation pattern and active impedance results, beam synthesis with main lobe, side lobe, null and active impedance targets, multi-polarization array analysis, sub-array analysis and more.
RF FRONT END DESIGN
Optenni Lab supports optimization of RFFE chains such that the LNA noise figure is optimal for all carrier aggregation combinations. The simulation model includes full switch models, acoustic filters, layout, possible other passive components, and the optimizable “black box” matching networks providing the desired impedance behavior at all switch states.

“Optenni Lab is helping us to create optimum matching circuits, allowing less component adjustments in the prototyping phase and faster time to market for the final product.”
Zlatoljub Milosavljevic, R&D Manager, Amphenol SAA
“We completed the antenna design task in record time, and the measured VSWR results agreed very well with the simulated results from Optenni Lab. Even with a simple antenna the choice of matching topology can be tricky, while Optenni Lab automatically provides a few best performing topologies, and optimizes them using the vendor components. This speeds up the design work considerably.”
Petri Rautio, RF Designer, COJOT
“Matching network design for antennas is a slow and iterative process. Optenni Lab creates automatically several topologies and speeds up the design process considerably. The tool is also very easy to use and does not require a special RF knowledge.”
Dr. Sami Hienonen, Technology Manager, Convergentia
