printed circuit antennas - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

please excuse the newbie question...

I am a graduate student working on a project that requires me to design a printed circuit antenna and a circuit connected to it.

I want to know about softwares (preferably free) that can be used to design printed circuit antennas.

I came across Momentum from the Agilent EESoF but it is a bit too expensive and does not seem to have an evaluation version.

Again please excuse the newbie question.

Well, free software for printed circuit antennas...

You can use trial versions of Sonnet.com or Ansoft Serenade (Student Version).

There're also free versions of NEC (Numerical Electromagnet Code), http://www.qsl.net/wb6tpu/swindex.html which you can use together with MMANA (I believe it's a user interface, never worked with nec)

Even the good old PUFF can do it :)

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
