Wireless InSite is site-specific radio propagation software for the analysis of wireless communication systems, wireless networks, sensors, radars, and other devices that transmit or receive radio waves. The software provides efficient and accurate predictions of EM propagation and communication channel characteristics in complex urban, indoor, rural and mixed path environments.
Applications range from military defense to commercial communications:
Blink is the industry’s first modeling software to offer two different EM (electromagnetic) solvers for the design of passive devices. It allows IC designers to model new passive devices within a normal Cadence Virtuoso based integrated circuit design flow. It quickly characterizes spiral inductors, baluns, transformers, MIM caps, interdigitated capacitors, and transmission lines for RFIC and mixed signal IC design.
Trends in automotive safety are pushing radar systems to higher levels of accuracy and reliable target identification for applications like blind spot detection and collision prevention assistance. Consequently, the requirements for automotive radar sensors in common ranges such as 24 GHz and/or 77 GHz are becoming more stringent and engineers need to better understand how design decisions affect performance.
Case study on electromagnetic (EM) simulation software used to design metamaterial antennas.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has formed an international alliance with about a dozen telecommunications companies and universities to model and measure wireless channels at much higher frequencies than those used today to hasten the development of future cellphones and other devices.
