In this module, a single-section coupler using both a stripline and microstrip line configurations in Ansys HFSS are detailed. Variation of the gap between the traces is shown to highlight gap distance’s effect on electrical coupling response. The planar model geometry is also modified to wrap around some curved geometry to illustrate the effects of physical model geometry on electrical coupling response. A connectorized model is also shown using a built-in Ansys HFSS 3D Component of an SMA connector.
