XFdtd includes a schematic editor and frequency-domain circuit solver for analyzing matching networks and corporate feed networks. The evolution of wireless products over the past decade has integrated more components, shrinking the available real estate for a device’s antennas and complicating design. Further, engineers are faced with the challenge of designing antennas operating in multiple RF bands. The latest version of XFdtd provides a seamless integration of circuit simulation with full-wave simulation, enabling analysis of complex matching networks, corporate feeds, and multi-port devices along with antennas. This webinar introduces this capability as well as operating modes for simulating multi-state devices.
