Microwave Office: PCB antenna simulation 868MHz

Published on 23, Jan

In part one of this application note we had discussed basic design concepts and simulation methods for “printed” PCB antennas. Now in this second part, we will discuss advanced topics: Co-simulation of antenna and SMD matching components for electrically small antennas Using the Analyst 3D FEM solver to include the effect of finite PCB size, […]

Microwave Office: PCB antenna simulation 2.4GHz/5.6GHz

Published on 16, Jan

This document describes the design and simulation of simple PCB antennas for 2.4GHz and 5.6GHz with Microwave Office and the Axiem EM simulator. The first example shows a 2.4GHz single band antenna. The second example then shows a dual band version for 2.4GHz and 5.6GHz. Finally, we will investigate the sensitivity to PCB material tolerances. […]
