Ansys HFSS Floquet Port

Current Status

Get Started

The Floquet port is one of the excitation types offered by Ansys HFSS in Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT) for electromagnetic simulations. This kind of port is used exclusively with planar-periodic structures. Some of the examples are planar phased arrays and frequency selective surfaces when these may be idealized as infinitely large. The planar phased arrays are extensively used in 5G, ADAS, and V2X applications. In this course we will introduce the Floquet port and its key features followed by analysis of an example.

Intro to Ansys HFSS

Antennas are the means of communication that can transmit as well as receive signals. The communication distance depends not only on the operating frequency band but also on the design characteristics of the radiating element. Out of all the available antenna types, patch antennas can be compact and of low profile while having required radiation capabilities. However, certain applications like 5G, ADAS, V2X require these patch antennas implemented in array for having more directional gain, impedance bandwidth, beam steering capability, etc. In this AIC module, we are going to detail microstrip patch and its array as a method of design.
