Amphenol SAA Designs Optimum Matching Circuits With Optenni Lab

Amphenol SAA uses Optenni Lab for designing matching circuits of antennas, resulting in maximum antenna efficiency.

The Design Task

Amphenol SAA uses Optenni Lab for designing matching circuits of antennas for different wireless applications such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, M2M and vehicle applications. One of the main design challenges is to design a very broadband antenna with typically small antenna volumes. This is especially pronounced nowadays in LTE/MIMO applications. Global LTE coverage with 10+ bands to cover with a single-feed antenna creates a challenge for an optimum antenna matching with minimum insertion loss.

The Optenni Solution

Optenni Lab allows us to create matching circuits with minimum number of components and minimizing added insertion loss, resulting in maximum antenna efficiency. This is especially important for very challenging antenna impedances. Key to the successful design is the use of realistic component libraries as well as good optimization algorithms. We also found additional features like bandwidth potential and electromagnetic isolation really valuable in characterizing the unmatched antennas. Optenni’s customer support is very knowledgeable with prompt replies.
