Phased-Array Antenna Design

Presented by: Joel Kirshman, Cadence
Registration: Register Here (Recording)

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

Specific highlights include:

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