Lexiwave Designers Develop Efficient 24-GHz Radar Antenna Array Using NI AWR Software


Antenna performance plays a critical role in determining the communication range and quality of service necessary for wireless and internet of things (IoT) devices and electrically-small, efficient antennas are in high demand. Lexiwave Technology Ltd. in Hong Kong has developed an efficient 24-GHz short-range, object-detection and distance measurement radar antenna array using NI AWR software, specifically the AXIEM planar and Analyst 3D finite-element method (FEM) electromagnetic (EM) simulators, as well as the AntSyn antenna design and synthesis tool. 

“NI AWR software is the only design platform that offers not only a complete suite of tools for efficient and accurate antenna design and simulation, but also an antenna synthesis tool, which shortened our design time significantly,” said Henry Lau, CEO of Lexiwave.
