Webinar Overview

In antenna and RF design, matching circuits are often needed to widen the operation bandwidth and to increase the performance of wireless systems. However, designing and building the matching circuits is nontrivial as many factors can cause the performance of the manufactured matching circuit to differ from the simulated performance. In the webinar, the sources of the discrepancy between measurements and simulation will be identified. We will demonstrate a first-time-right design flow of matching circuit using the FEKO electromagnetic solver and the Optenni Lab RF Design Automation Platform. The most critical design areas are the accurate representation of the matching circuit layout, using realistic component models, correct calibration and reference plane in measurements and taking the radiation efficiency and multiantenna radiation patterns into account.

Webinar Outline
