Antenna Design/Analysis

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Antenna technology is constantly advancing to meet the growing demands of industry. Likewise, Remcom has been keeping pace in order to provide engineers with a suite of tools that match their processes and help them meet their design requirements.

Some of the antenna analysis areas Remcom specializes in include:

  • WiFi/Wireless LAN/WiMAX
  • Mobile Devices (cellular, Bluetooth, GPS)
  • Antenna Arrays
  • General Antenna

Antenna engineers favor advanced antenna systems capable of beam steering and multiple data stream transmission in order to meet 5G throughput requirements.  Designing such a device is a difficult task because many factors are involved a device’s performance:

  • Antenna coupling within a device’s case
  • Effects of multipath propagation
  • Data transfer schemes

XFdtd and Wireless InSite ensure a comprehensive device design process, from simulating the initial antenna pattern to computing throughput performance in a multipath channel model. Together the products ensure a device will work well in its intended environment.

IDS offers Antenna Design Framework and Electromagnetic Satellite (ADF-EMS) software for analyzing structures with a large number of elements to ensure excellent array performance. 

The challenges involved with measuring an antenna’s radiation characteristics when it’s mounted on a large platform stem from the fact that it’s very difficult to accurately simulate an antenna’s interaction with an electrically large environment.

HUBER+SUHNER develops and produces an extensive portfolio of directional and omni-directional antennas for a wide range of indoor and outdoor wireless connections. Among these antennas include Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) for indoor coverage of mobile communication voice and data traffic, antennas with low visual impact and high data-traffic, and many other antennas optimized for wireless transportation communications, WLAN, and WiFi applications.

The SAS-326-10 is a surveillance/jamming antenna designed to operate withing the 30 MHz to 26 GHz frequency range, which allows for prosecution of a large portion of the RF spectrum. Constructed as a broadband dual band discone/bicone antenna, it is ideal for spectrum operations and spectrum management applications.

FEKO software is a comprehensive EM simulation tool, based on state of the art computational electromagnetics techniques. The software enables engineers to solve a wide range of electromagnetic problems.

The R&S®ATS1000 antenna test chamber is designed to provide the ideal environment for 5G antenna characterization throughout the entire process from R&D to production for both active and passive devices. This system supports far-field and near-field antenna measurements with its compact design. The mobile chamber helps to optimize the overall RF performance of antenna modules already in the initial phases of development.
