reflector model

Crossed Dipole Array in Front of Reflector

A crossed dipole array with metallic reflector is modeled in FEKO to determine its gain pattern. In mobile communication systems the position and orientation of the receiving and transmitting antennas change continually. This can affect the signal strength at the receiver, … Read More


Annular Ring Microstrip Antenna Characterisation

An annular ring antenna from open literature is simulated and compared with the published results. Model Geometry This article presents the FEKO simulation of an annular ring example from [1].  Figure 1 depicts the geometry from [1, Fig. 2b] with … Read More

Design and Optimization of an LTE Mobile Phone Antenna

In this white paper an LTE antenna is designed for use in a mobile phone, using a dual-port configuration. Using FEKO, the antenna is also optimized for minimal reflection co-efficient at both ports and cross-coupling between the ports as low … Read More

Thermal Analysis for Implant Safety

The number of people with medical implants, such as pacemakers, replacement for various joints and monitoring devices are increasing steadily. At the same time, more and more people undergo MRI examinations for diagnostic purposes. During an MRI scan, strong RF … Read More

Shunt Coupled Spiral Inductor

A spiral inductor on a substrate is simulated in a shunt configuration and its S-parameters extracted. This article presents FEKO simulations that are representative of RF components that are constructed on a dielectric.  The model that is simulated here is … Read More

Four-Port Microstrip Coupler

A four-port microstrip coupler is modelled in FEKO to calculate its transmission, coupling and isolation Schwab and Menzel described the design of microwave components using planar multilayer structures in [1].  One of the structures described in this work is the … Read More
