Analysis, Benchmarking, and Verification

Antenna and array analysis, meshing, solvers, comparison of Antenna Toolbox™ simulations with measured results

Each element in the Antenna Toolbox library has a set of analysis functions. You can use these functions to analyze the various elements in the antenna and array library or to analyze the antennas and arrays that you have designed using the design function. Mesh the antennas into discretized triangles for solving analysis equations. Compare Antenna Toolbox simulations with fabricated antennas, measured results, and technical articles.

  • Antenna and Array Analysis
    Port, surface, and field analysis; embedded pattern, pattern multiplication
  • Solvers
