Integrated Windscreen Antenna Analysis

The growing trend in the automotive industry is to include a wide variety of antennas in vehicles. Antennas for AM and FM radio, television, GPS navigation, GSM communication and automated tolling are becoming standard on vehicles. To find a combination of antenna topologies and locations that is both functional and aesthetically acceptable, is a challenging task. The integration of antennas into windscreens has become a popular solution.

However, the design of such antennas is a complex procedure, requiring the ability to analyse electromagnetic interactions between thinly layered dielectrics, thin embedded wires and the surrounding vehicle body. FEKO provides accurate and efficient solutions to analyse complex integrated windscreen antennas.
