AWR Design Environment Presents Web-Based Training for Phased-Array Antenna Design

Apr 22, 2020


This Cadence® AWR Design Environment® web-based training will give users of AWR® software a jump start on using AWR Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) for phased-array antenna design for multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO) and beam steering applications. The course will provide software demonstrations of design examples.

Highlights include:

  • Phased-array simulation and analysis
    • Phased-array modeling
  • Phased-array generator wizard
    • Phased-array and MIMO configurations
    • Circuit schematic and EM layout
  • Phased-array detailed configuration and analysis capabilities in VSS
    • Configuration options
    • Phased-array file-based model
    • RF link characterization
    • Modeling mutual coupling
    • Active impedance in phased arrays
  • Adaptive hybrid beamforming systems
    • Digital beamforming
    • Hybrid beamforming
    • Phased-array modeling

Joel Kirshman, the presenter for this module, is a senior principal application engineer for VSS at Cadence. He started his career at Elanix Inc., and worked at The Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, CA prior to joining AWR, which has been acquired by Cadence. Joel has a BA in mathematics from Occidental College and an MS in electrical engineering from California State University, Northridge.
