AWR releases two application notes focused on
Note: Design of a Near Field Communication Antenna System
NFC is being developed as a form of contactless
communication between wireless devices like smartphones and tablets. This application note describes a sample
Rohde & Schwarz NFC design using Microwave Office™/AXIEM®. Thanks to its ability to incorporate EM models easily
into nonlinear schematics, as well as support for EM model parameterization and interpolation, AWR software is
well suited to the design of NFC antenna systems, which require EM simulation of both the polling and listening
sides of the antenna system, as well as the incorporation of discrete elements, including nonlinear diode bridges
that convert RF energy into DC signals.
AWR Connected™ Application Note:
Design Flow for Base Station Antennas
Antenna Magus now brings automated synthesis capability to the field
of antenna design. Antenna Magus automates the initial selection/narrowing of scope aspect of the design
process, enabling the engineer to evaluate more options and develop deeper insights within a shorter amount of
time. This design note describes how antennas designed in Antenna Magus can be exported as models to AWR’s
Microwave Office/ AXIEM software for analysis and integration with circuits and other system components, truly
integrating the design of the antenna into the overall design of the device and the system.
o NFC Application Note:
o AWR Connected for Antenna Magus Application Note:
innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, dramatically reduces development time and cost for products employed
in wireless, high-speed wired, broadband, aerospace and defense, and electro-optical applications.
