In this video from Remcom's booth at IMS 2019, Jeff Barney introduces the CDF of EIRP metric for antenna phased array analysis in XFdtd. The example demonstrates a special diversity application using a smartphone, but this metric is also useful for dual polarized antennas, 2D MIMO systems, subsystem arrays, and more.
This video gives a demonstration of Full-Wave Antenna Matching Circuit Optimization using XFdtd's Circuit Element Optimizer (CEO). The antenna matching circuit design flow is discussed, including CEO's analysis of a given PCB layout. Predicted S-parameters and optimal component value results for two different frequency bands are also shown.
Using the pre-loaded scripting library in XFdtd, this video demonstrates simulation of a helical antenna, which is then imported into XGtd for analysis on a satellite. See how XFdtd’s scripting language helps to quickly automate advanced modeling tasks. After the 3D far field pattern is imported into XGtd, the video shows how the software calculates the interaction of the antenna with an electrically large object -- in this case a satellite.
This video shows how XF and Wireless InSite complement each other to allow a designer complete freedom in the creation, simulation and analysis of an antenna. A monopole antenna is prototyped and placed on the roof of a sedan in XF. The resulting simulation is then imported into Wireless InSite in order to analyze the energy propagation in a real city.
