Models available for export to the AWR Design Environment ? (AWRDE) increased by 50% in 3.4

Friday, January 13th, 2012

We have received very positive feedback and growing interest from customers about the AWR model export capability, which was released in 2011. As with all the EM Analysis products supported by Antenna Magus (like FEKO and CST MICROWAVE STUDIO) the number of exportable models for these tools is continually growing. With the release of version 3.4, the number of models that can be exported to from Antenna Magus to AWRDE increased by 50%!

This functionality enables users to export models of antennas directly to AWRDE for analysis using the AXIEM solver. As with all Antenna Magus export models, the AWRDE models are fully parametric and validated across the entire design range. A number of the models use specially developed PCELLS to provide flexible geometries that can?t otherwise be created parametrically. These models can easily be integrated into circuitry and optimized together with other parts of the system.

More information on exactly which antennas can be exported to AWR can be found in the latest release notes.

Version 3.4 released

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

During the development of a customer case study centered on the design of a Ka-band reflector antenna, the usefulness of exposing more of these design decisions to the user for parabolic reflectors became apparent. Version 3.4 is dedicated to releasing design algorithm extensions that do exactly that. There are 2 new parabolic reflector antennas, 2 new tools to aid in parabolic antenna design and 58 new objective groups added to existing parabolic reflector antennas. This added complexity makes the reflector class of antennas much more flexible, and will allow users to realise even better designs!
