Antenna design with Efield®

Designing a single antenna element or large arrays by means of computational synthesis can be done efficiently and reliably with Efield®. Examples of antenna applications are:

  • Horn antennas
  • Patch antennas
  • Communication antennas
  • Broadband antennas
  • Antenna arrays
  • Reflector antennas
Efield® has the solution to most antenna applications using Efield® unique solver technology. Modeling of horn antennas or patch antennas using Efield® frequency domain MoM solver or large reflector antennas using Efield® frequency domain MLFMM or MLFMM-PO solver are excellent choices. Broadband antennas and antenna arrays are well suited to Efield® time domain FDTD-FEM solver.
