Full Wave Matching Circuit Optimization Shortens Design Iterations

Full wave matching circuit optimization (FW-MCO) is a new technology that combines full wave, 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulation with circuit optimization into a novel approach for solving an age-old RF problem: determining which component values provide the desired match for a given matching network layout.

Gone are the days of soldering components in and out of a prototype, trying to achieve the desired performance. This article describes the design process using the design of a matching circuit for a GPS-Bluetooth antenna.
