Darmstadt, Germany and Stellenbosch, South Africa, October 3, 2013, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and MAGUS (Pty) Ltd (MAGUS) are developing new tools for linear antenna arrays including feed networks, to launch with the newest version of Magus’ flagship product Antenna Magus. These features will be previewed at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2013, booth #103.
Engineers involved with planar arrays often estimate the performance of the array from single elements, using array synthesis methods to determine the number of elements required, their spacing and the relative excitations. Although this approach provides a good starting point, it does not include a number of practical effects, such as mutual coupling, or the influence of the feed network – and indeed, the actual layout of the feed network.
Darmstadt, Germany and Espoo, Finland, October 2, 2013, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and Optenni Ltd (Optenni) are collaborating to provide engineers with design tools for MIMO antenna optimization.
