AXIEM 3D Planar EM Simulation Software Features Antenna Analysis

The 2010 release of AWR AXIEM 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulation software now features antenna analysis. AXIEM 2010 includes new features and capabilities that are ideal for large, planar, antenna designs such as arrays with many elements. Critical design problems, such as scan blindness, can now be discovered and corrected. Post-processing such as antenna patterns for linear, circular, and elliptical polarizations; numerous antenna measurements (including gain); and current visualization/animations are now part of the 2010 release. AXIEM version 2010 is part of the AWR Design Environment (AWRDE), which is now shipping.
