Analysis and Verification
Each element in the RF PCB Toolbox™ library has a set of analysis functions. Use these functions to analyze:
Use this category also to mesh the PCBs into discretized triangles and tetrahedrons for solving analysis equations. You can also compare RF PCB Toolbox simulations with fabricated PCBs, measured results, and technical articles.
