Antenna and Array Analysis
Perform port, surface, and field (space around the antenna) analysis of antennas and arrays. Use plane waves to excite an antenna to simulate a receiving antenna. Use Antenna Toolbox™ functions to read and write data from MSI Planet antenna files. Design and tune geometric properties of antennas in the antenna library to resonate at a particular frequency.
|Create plane wave excitation environment for antenna or array|
|Input impedance of antenna; scan impedance of array|
|Return loss of antenna; scan return loss of array|
|Calculate S-parameter for antenna and antenna array objects|
|Voltage standing wave ratio of antenna|
|Calculate current at feed for antenna or array|
|Radiation efficiency of antenna|
|Radiation pattern and phase of antenna or array; Embedded pattern of antenna element in array|
|Azimuth pattern of antenna or array|
|Elevation pattern of antenna or array|
|Beamwidth of antenna|
|Electric and magnetic fields of antennas; Embedded electric and magnetic fields of antenna element in arrays|
|Axial ratio of antenna|
|Calculate phase shift values for arrays or multi-feed PCB stack|
|Calculate and plot radar cross section (RCS) of platform, antenna, or array|
This example shows how to construct, visualize and analyze the antenna elements in the Antenna Toolbox.
This example shows how to construct, visualize, and analyze an antenna array from the Antenna Toolbox.
This example demonstrates the use of infinite array analysis to model the behavior of a single element - the unit cell embedded in the array - .
