EM De-Embedding Magic Part 2: Lots Of Ports, All Talking To Each Other!
By Dr. James C. Rautio, president, CEO, and founder; Sonnet Software, Inc.
In part one, I described how I came up with the EM port calibration theory that we have been using very successfully for nearly 30 years. To de-embed a single, lonely port, just EM analyze a 2-port through line of length L, and a second one of length 2L, do some magic math, and we have beautiful, fully de-embedded EM analysis data for that lonely port. But, what happens when we have two tightly coupled ports?

Spotlight On Software

EM Simulation Of Automotive Radar Mounted In Vehicle Bumper
Trends in automotive safety are pushing radar systems to higher levels of accuracy and reliability for blind spot detection and collision prevention assistance. Consequentially, engineers need to better understand how mounting brackets, fascia, paint color, and bumper assemblies affect the far field radiation patterns of 24 GHz and 77 GHz automotive radar systems.


3D EM Field Analysis Software
FEKO is a suite of tools that is used for electromagnetic field analysis of 3D structures. FEKO simulations are based on the Method of Moments approximation to Maxwell's equations and features several extensions to the MoM for the solution of complex problems, including large structures and human tissue.


Microwave Filter Design Software
Dionysus is a microwave filter design software that leaves more time for wine and song. It features a multifunction design and analysis program for ceramic, LC, and cavity filters.


EM Simulation Software Suite
CST STUDIO SUITE 2014 is the culmination of many years of research and development into the most accurate and efficient computational solutions for electromagnetic designs.


Installed Antenna Modeling Software
Savant is asymptotic high frequency electromagnetic analysis software, providing fast and accurate prediction of antenna performance as installed on platforms that are tens to thousands of wavelengths in size.


Microwave Design Tool
µWave Wizard is a design tool using the fast and accurate mode matching technique. This method is particularly suitable for the simulation and optimization of passive microwave systems and components, including antennas.
