Learn practical simulation engineering techniques while following along with hands-on examples that can be completed either using your valid commercial/academic Ansys license or with Ansys Electronics Desktop Student.
This course focuses on the rectangular and circular waveguides filled with a lossless dielectric of the various types of waveguides available. This course covers the theory behind wave propagation in rectangular and circular waveguides by going through their governing equations. This course also covers the simulation aspects of these two waveguides using Ansys HFSS for a better learning experience to the user.
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.
In this module, we describe cosimulation as a method of design. By definition, the method of cosimulation involves two or more simulation types that are performed to simulate a whole system. With cosimulation, a dynamic link is created between the two tools so that the changes in one tool is reflected in the other in real time. The power of cosimulation will be demonstrated with the help of a 5G phased array application. We will focus on the cosimulation abilities of the Ansys HFSS MCAD, HFSS ECAD and Circuit tools present in the Ansys Electronic Desktop. However, the cosimulation feature can also be used across different Ansys physics tools.
