  1. Pioneering Real Wireless Power Delivery At Ossia Inc.: FEKO In The Simulation Process

    Ossia Inc. revolutionizes the mobility and connectivity of people and industries through the creation of ecosystems for delivering smart wireless power to the small devices. This case study discusses how the Cota technology works and FEKO has been a powerful enabling tool for technology development at Ossia.

  2. Combining Near-Field Measurement And Simulation For EMC Radiation Analysis

    Failing a required EMC test at the end of a product design cycle can imply a costly product redesign and drastically set back the time-to-market. This white paper outlines a process that enables required EMC testing to be performed much earlier in the design cycle.

  3. Using FEKO To Calculate Radar Cross Section Of Aircrafts With Engine Inlets

    Asymptotic methods are the preferred method for calculating the radar cross section (RCS) of targets like aircrafts since the main parts of the target are more than an order of magnitude larger than the wavelength. 

  4. Internet Of Things — Value And Waves

    The IoT is an umbrella for many wireless technologies, covers a broad set of applications, and is targeted to specific vertical markets. Many developers are now creating IoT products using Altair’s electromagnetic simulation tools and system level modeling solutions. 

  5. NASA Develops Wireless Sensors To Detect Lightning Strike Damage To Composite Aircrafts

    This article presents their process of using FEKO software in conjunction with optimizing and validating sensor designs in order to fast-track readiness for aircraft safety and commercial applications.

  6. Modeling mmWave Substrate Lens Antennas For Wireless Communications

    A single-beam substrate antenna is simply comprised of a slot coupled microstrip antenna with a large lens that is constructed on top of it. In 2001, scientists had proposed designs for both the single and multi-beam mmWave circulary polarized substrate lens antennas. This white paper takes these designs and demonstrates creating them through FEKO modeling.

  7. Automotive Radars — Antenna Design, Integration, And Channel Modelling

    Driving aid radar systems are critical to enabling key technologies in the development of autonomous vehicles. With the need to meet not only road safety applications, but parking assist functions as well, certain specifications must be maintained for the antenna to be integrated into the vehicle. 

  8. Designing Printed Ka-Band Reflectarrays With Offset Feed

    A printed reflectarray is a high-gain, low profile, low-cost antenna that combines the advantages of parabolic reflector antennas with microstrip arrays. This white paper demonstrates how to easily create a printed reflectarray and its simpler feeds through the use of FEKO simulation software.

  9. The SKA Radio Telescope: A Global Project For A Better Understanding Of The Universe

    To answer the universe’s most profound questions, 11 countries have joined together in an effort to create the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope project. The SKA will be a large collection of antennas that will be spread over large distances to work together as an interferometric array. When completed, the SKA will be 10,000 times faster and 50 times more sensitive than any existing radio telescope. This article explains how FEKO simulation is used to study the antenna interference characteristics in detail and in such a short amount of time.

  10. Cross-Coupling Between A 3G Transmitter And A Cable Bundle

    This white paper explains how to compute cross-coupling effects between a cable bundle and 3G antenna mounted on a vehicle through the utilization of the cable modeling interface in FEKO. It also demonstrates the FEKO GUI elements that are useful for setting up an investigation into the cross-coupling between transmitters and cable bundles.
