This collection of videos showcases interesting applications and features of Remcom’s electromagnetic simulation software and wireless propagation tools.
Remcom performed a study using Wireless InSite's MIMO capability to generate the complex channel matrices for several mobile devices in an urban scene. We then extracted these results and applied two standard beamforming algorithms (using mathematical analysis tools) to visualize beamforming in motion.
This video gives a demonstration of Full-Wave Antenna Matching Circuit Optimization using XFdtd's Circuit Element Optimizer (CEO). The antenna matching circuit design flow is discussed, including CEO's analysis of a given PCB layout. Predicted S-parameters and optimal component value results for two different frequency bands are also shown.
This getting started video details the triangle geometry construction of a bow tie antenna in XFdtd, including the component placement of a voltage source driving the antenna.
In this video, a Remcom engineer walks through the steps to set up and tune a Ku Band microstrip lens in Rotman Lens Designer (RLD). Included is a discussion of the various options for exporting the file and importing into XFdtd EM Simulation Software, including the use of a customized script to automatically set up the ports and include the material properties.
This video demonstrates antenna radiation far field pattern results viewing, including 3D view and 2D cutplane plots, in XFdtd.
This video uses several examples to demonstrate XFdtd's various meshing techniques: 2D Cutplane Mesh Views, 3D Mesh Cropping, and XACT Accurate Cell Technology for curved geometries.
This video demonstrates CAD import options in XFdtd, including the import of a PCB in ODB++ and subsequent parameterization and modification of the geometry. We also discuss XF's unique CAD Merge feature, which allows updates to be imported while preserving previous settings and parts.
Remcom's XFdtd 3D EM simulator integrates with Optenni Lab for antenna matching circuit optimization. This brief video shows the highlights of the workflow and integration using a GPS and Bluetooth mobile device antenna.
Get acquainted with XFdtd's user interface with our FICA Antenna Creation tutorials. The content is based on our first day of XFdtd training and is organized in two parts.
This short animation shows predicted RCS from an air traffic control radar with an aircraft flying over a wind farm, before and after the static ground clutter (returns from terrain) are filtered out.
This video is a tutorial that shows a rectangular waveguide being built using XF’s modeling techniques. You will learn how to use XF’s built-in materials library, create the waveguide interface, solve for and display lowest-order TE modes, and display the field results.
This video demonstrates how XFdtd sets up a parameterized geometry, rapidly prepares and performs the simulations using XStream, and then optimizes designs using particle swarm optimization.
This video expands a basic floor plan design into a six-story office building. Wireless InSite’s duplication tools make it easy to add levels and floors to the model. In addition, the creation of stairwells and a central glass atrium with a peaked roof are shown.
This video introduces Wireless InSite’s Floor Plan tools and shows the user how to create and edit an indoor environment. The demonstration includes the placement of walls, doorways, and windows, along with material selection from Wireless InSite’s material database. In addition to the 2D floor plan editor, the video also demonstrates how to make edits within the 3D display.
This video demonstrates the antenna sets within Wireless InSite and walks users through the available options. Users will also learn how to assemble an antenna set and choose their antenna pattern. The video also covers Wireless InSite’s visualization tools, which allow the user to see how their antennas are oriented within the antenna set.
This video explores Wireless InSite’s basic antenna functionality. Users will be introduced to several built-in antenna types and will also learn how to import their own user-defined antenna patterns. The video also showcases Wireless InSite’s built in functionality for defining and visualizing antenna patterns within the software.
Remcom’s XGtd can simulate the propagation paths of fields interacting with two wind turbines in close proximity. XGtd then generates a movie that shows the directions and magnitudes of the strongest propagation paths, including multipath occurring between the turbines.
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.
This video demonstrates how XFdtd allows the user to create and manipulate extremely detailed models. A CAD model of a sedan is imported and then material properties are assigned for each part. The result is a very accurate model of the vehicle which can be used as a test bed for antenna simulations.
Using Wireless InSite and the Real Time Module, this video demonstrates a vehicle-mounted antenna moving through a city and how its patterns are affected by buildings.
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.
This video describes the process by which an antenna is optimally placed on a vehicle using a genetic algorithm to optimize the placement.
