Antenna and Array Analysis
Perform port, surface, and field (space around the antenna) analysis of antennas and arrays. Use plane waves to excite an antenna to simulate a receiving antenna. Use Antenna Toolbox™ functions to read and write data from MSI Planet antenna files. Design and tune geometric properties of antennas in the antenna catalog to resonate at a particular frequency.
|Create plane wave excitation environment for antenna or array|
|Input impedance of antenna or scan impedance of array|
|Return loss of antenna or scan return loss of array|
|Calculate S-parameters for antennas and antenna arrays|
|Voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) of antenna or array element|
|Calculate current at feed for antenna or array|
|Radiation efficiency of antenna (Since R2021a)|
|Plot radiation pattern and phase of antenna or array or embedded pattern of antenna element in array|
|Azimuth plane radiation pattern of antenna or array|
|Elevation plane radiation pattern of antenna or array|
|Beamwidth of antenna|
|Electric and magnetic fields of antennas or embedded electric and magnetic fields of antenna element in arrays|
|Axial ratio of antenna|
|Calculate phase shift values for arrays or multi-feed PCB stack|
|Calculate and plot radar cross section (RCS) of platform, antenna, or array (Since R2019b)|
|Direction of arrival of signal (Since R2022a)|
