New array synthesis tool in Antenna Magus 2.0 – very handy

Before I worked with the new array synthesis tool in Antenna Magus I had little experience in array design. I previously did some design and simulation work on a couple of cellular base station antennas using linear dipole and planar array configurations. Once I had to reverse engineer a planar array to reproduce the far field for EMI simulations. I wouldn’t have rated myself as very experienced array designer but after working with the new array synthesis tool I probably know 10 times more about arrays than I used to. And I’m trying not to sound too biased but it is just so easy to use and to experiment with lots of different design combinations: changing physical shape, element patterns, spacing, excitation tapers and view all the beautiful 3D patterns.

Here are a couple of different array designs I created after playing with the array tool for less than an hour. Click on the image to enlarge.

    Wow, awesome (functional) art. Pretty sweet.
