Array modeling is a multistep process that often includes several revisions until the design goal is met. The Mobile Base Station Designer in XF’s XTend Script Library helps to speed up this design process. XStreamGPU Acceleration rapidly simulates the array using the actual antenna model to ensure the final design meets the design criteria. This presentation demonstrates how to design a conformal antenna array on a curved surface.
The bottlenecks for simulation tools used for antenna design are typically in two areas: project setup and simulation speed. By reducing the time spent in these two areas, RF engineers have more time to design their antennas. Remcom’s XFdtd reduces these bottlenecks in several ways, including parameterization, scripting, advanced meshing techniques, and GPU implementation of the computational algorithm.
