Antenna Design Software
Antenna Magus is a software tool for the acceleration of the antenna design and modeling process. Validated antenna models can be exported to CST Studio Suite from a huge antenna database of over 350 antennas.
Antenna Magus is a software product for the design and simulation of various types of antennas, including a database of models (more than 350) that can be subsequently exported to the CST Studio Suite for analysis and optimization. Antenna Magus is an indispensable tool for modeling antenna placement in space and studying electromagnetic interference. With Antenna Magus, antenna designers, EMC specialists, and system integrators involved in large-scale antenna site evaluations can make the most informed decision regarding the selection and placement of antenna design elements to improve antenna performance.
The new version of Antenna Magus adds a range of printed antennas ranging from broadband LTSAs to extremely compact WLAN monopoles. Particular attention should be paid to the new model of a two-band PIFA antenna, which is widely used in mobile devices of the GSM 900/1800 standard. It is notable for the ability to take into account parasitic elements that form an additional bandwidth (when compared with classic PIFA antennas previously available in Antenna Magus).
A number of dielectric leaky antennas have been added, as well as a multimode cone horn with a helical dielectric insert. Although there are many implementations available for dielectric rod antennas, in most cases they are a tapered rod of circular or rectangular cross section. In this case, the feeder waveguide excites part of the input power in the form of a surface wave propagating along the rod with minimal reflection. The resulting wave begins to radiate continuously, gradually transforming from a limited to a wave in free space.
Also added to Antenna Magus are a number of practical models of broadband planar helical antennas with an additional absorbing layer. Layers of absorbing material are used to produce unidirectional radiation while maintaining the multi-octave working range of helical radiators.
