Slot-Coupled Microstrip Patch Antenna Array Synthesizer

Application ID: 30601

Microstrip patch antenna arrays are used in a number of industries as transceivers of radar and RF signals. This is a prime candidate for the 5G mobile network system.

The Slot-Coupled Microstrip Patch Antenna Array Synthesizer simulates a single slot-coupled microstrip patch antenna, fabricated on a multilayered low-temperature cofired ceramic (LTCC) substrate. When using this app, you will be able to simulate the far-field radiation pattern of the antenna array and its directivity. The far-field radiation pattern is approximated by multiplying the array factor and the single antenna radiation pattern to perform an efficient far-field analysis without simulating a complicated full-array model. You can also evaluate phased antenna array prototypes for 5G mobile networks with the default input frequency, 30 GHz.

You can do this by varying antenna properties such as the geometric dimension and substrate material.

An added feature of this app is the option to view it on either a narrow or a wide screen.

This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
