Antennas 6.2.10

8.4.1. Single patch

This section explains how to create a single patch antenna.

When the option is selected, the next panel and a previsualization of the antenna with the parameters on the panel are displayed.

Single Patch panel

Position: set the cartesian coordinates for the position of the antenna. For the antenna, user can select the position with the mouse by selecting the 'Pick' checkbox and clicking any point in the geometry panel.

Dimensions: set the values of the length and width of the patch (Lpatch and Wpatch), the position of the feeding point from the center of the  patch (Fdist) as well as the length, width and height of the substrate material (Lsubs, Wsubs and Hsubs).

Layer Properties: set the substrate material from the material library of newFasant.

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.

  • Position: set the cartesian coordinates for the position of the antenna. For the antenna, user can select the position with the mouse by selecting the 'Pick' checkbox and clicking any point in the geometry panel.
  • Patch dimensions: set the values of the length and width of the patches (Lpatch and Wpatch) and the position of the feeding point from the center of the  patch (Fdist).
  • Array dimensions: set the values of the number of patches in X (Nx), the number of patches in Y (Ny), the distance between patches in X (Dx) and the distance between patches in Y (Dy).
  • Layer Properties: set the substrate material from the material library of NewFasant and the height of the substrate material (Hsubs).

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.

8.4.3. Circular array

This section explains how to create a circular patch array antenna.

When the option is selected, the next panel and a previsualization of the antenna with the parameters on the panel are displayed.

  • Patch dimensions: set the values of the length and width of the patches (Lpatch and Wpatch) and the position of the feeding point from the center of the  patch (Fdist).
  • Array dimensions: set the values of the number of patches in the first ring (Nring_1), the number of rings (Rings) and the distance between rings (Dring).
  • Layer Properties: set the substrate material from the material library of NewFasant and the height of the substrate material (Hsubs).

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.
