AWR and Optenni recently teamed on AWR Connected for Optenni Lab. The new workflow helps antenna designers to easily use best-of-class tools for the design and analysis of matching circuits. The integrated workflow with AWR Microwave Office is implemented in Optenni Lab version 1.4 SP3, which is available now.
AWR Connected for Optenni Lab is an integrated workflow that accelerates wireless antenna design by enabling optimized matching circuits to be transferred from Optenni Lab matching circuit software to AWR’s Microwave Office high-frequency design software with a single mouse click. The interface constructs the matching circuit in Microwave Office, sets up and runs the simulation, and then allows for additional refinement and analysis within Microwave Office and AXIEM, AWR’s 3D planar electromagnetic simulator.
Optenni Lab software enables matching circuits for antenna applications to be designed within seconds, starting from simulated or measured antenna impedance and the specifications of the operating frequencies. Optenni Lab optimizes the efficiency of the matching circuit, taking into account impedance mismatch, component losses and manufacturer component data from a component library.
