Matching Network Design And Simulation In XFdtd
Remcom’s XFdtd EM Simulation Software offers unique capabilities to help engineers navigate antenna design challenges with speed and accuracy.
XF’s Huygens surface collects steady-state electric and magnetic fields on a closed surface encapsulating a device. These field values accurately capture antenna radiation characteristics.
Engineered Electromagnetic Surfaces (EES)
Wireless InSite's EES allows modeling of passive metasurfaces designed to optimize wireless communication coverage by manipulating how signals propagate through a scene.
Ray Tracing Simulation & Propagation Methods
Ray-tracing methods use discrete rays to represent advancing wavefronts as they propagate from a transmitter through a scene. Rays interact with geometry in the scene through reflections, diffractions, and transmissions. The two dominant ray-tracing methods are Shooting-and-Bouncing Rays and Image Theory. Remcom’s software combines these two methods to leverage the advantages of each.
Antenna Simulation Software For Antenna Design And Analysis
Antenna simulation software provides engineers with powerful tools to shorten development time and release products to market sooner.
5G Urban Small-Cell Analysis
With a tremendous increase in the number of connected devices and mobile data demand predicted over the next decade, the wireless communications industry is exploring new technologies to accommodate 5G wireless data systems, including MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) technology and millimeter wave frequency bands. One of the more complex environments for these technologies are urban small cells, where the prevalence of multipath and non-line-of-sight conditions leads to many challenges, particularly at higher frequencies.
5G Fixed Wireless Access
Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is one of the early planned use cases for 5G deployment, offering a new wireless alternative for providing broadband to homes and businesses. Because this requires very high bandwidth, many solutions for FWA consider use of new millimeter wave bands. This poses challenges for coverage, including increased path loss, weaker penetration through walls into the interiors of structures, and greater effects from shadowing of structures and trees on the outdoor propagation.
MIMO And Array Design For 5G
Antenna engineers favor advanced antenna systems capable of beam steering and multiple data stream transmission in order to meet 5G throughput requirements. Designing such a device is a difficult task because many factors are involved a device’s performance:
- Antenna coupling within a device’s case
- Effects of multipath propagation
- Data transfer schemes
XFdtd and Wireless InSite ensure a comprehensive device design process, from simulating the initial antenna pattern to computing throughput performance in a multipath channel model. Together the products ensure a device will work well in its intended environment.
Mobile Device Design Using Electromagnetic Simulation
Precision is key when designing today’s complex mobile devices, and engineers can’t afford discrepancies between device efficiency and simulation results. Remcom users see less than a 0.5 dB difference in device efficiency when compared to electromagnetic simulation results. Importing the right CAD model achieves a higher level of accuracy with measurements that are exceptionally close to the real device, streamlining workflow and simplifying the design process.
5G And MIMO Simulation Software
5G is pushing the boundaries of wireless communications and wireless device design. Significant innovations are needed in order to accommodate increased requirements for Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Massive Machine-Type Communications, and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications. To meet these challenges, the wireless industry is exploring new technologies, such as multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) and beamforming, higher frequency bands including millimeter waves, and a number of changes to how base stations and devices are deployed and used.
