Using XFdtd and XGtd to Design and Analyze a Helical Antenna on a Satellite

Using XFdtd and XGtd to Design and Analyze a Helical Antenna on a Satellite

Using the pre-loaded scripting library in XFdtd, this video demonstrates simulation of a helical antenna, which is then imported into XGtd for analysis on a satellite. See how XFdtd’s scripting language helps to quickly automate advanced modeling tasks. After the 3D far field pattern is imported into XGtd, the video shows how the software calculates the interaction of the antenna with an electrically large object -- in this case a satellite.

Antenna Design and Real World Analysis with XFdtd and Wireless InSite

Antenna Design and Real World Analysis with XFdtd and Wireless InSite

This video shows how XF and Wireless InSite complement each other to allow a designer complete freedom in the creation, simulation and analysis of an antenna. A monopole antenna is prototyped and placed on the roof of a sedan in XF. The resulting simulation is then imported into Wireless InSite in order to analyze the energy propagation in a real city.
