Designing An Impedance Matched Antenna: FEKO And Optenni Lab

Many designers will find Optenni Lab useful in creating antenna designs that will conform to any impedance requirement. Optenni Lab enables fast, automatic matching circuit design, and can estimate the obtainable bandwidth of the antenna at various frequencies. Having a good matching circuit for any antenna system offers the benefits of efficient operation, simpler adjustment of antenna impedance, freedom to change system parameters at a late design stage, and an improved antenna bandwidth performance.
