Optenni Lab: Electromagnetic Simulator Links Supported by Optenni Lab
Currently Optenni Lab supports links with the following electromagnetic simulators:
In a typical workflow the antenna geometry is designed and the radiation properties are characterized in the EM tool, and Optenni Lab is linked to the EM tool to provide the matched performance corresponding to the state of the design.
Optenni Lab can use radiation patterns from the EM tools to directly calculate the radiation efficiency as a function of port terminations. This enables optimization of the total efficiency also in highly coupled antenna systems and aperture tuner designs, where the radiation efficiency is strongly dependent upon the choice of the aperture component.
Moreover, Optenni Lab’s Antenna Array module uses the individual EM-simulated port radiation patterns in the beamforming and calculation of the total system efficiency.
