In this video, a Remcom engineer walks through the steps to set up and tune a Ku Band microstrip lens in Rotman Lens Designer (RLD). We populate the physical, electrical, and transmission line properties and analyze the performance of the lens by plotting the array factor and beam to array phase error. This data helps us to further tune the lens by adjusting the focal ratio and beam port excitation, and then we export the S-Parameters. Finally, we discuss the various options for exporting the file and importing into XFdtd EM Simulation Software, including the use of a customized script. The script import method automatically sets up the ports and also includes the material properties.

Our Waveguide Examples booklet showcases a collection of five different waveguide applications with downloadable project files.
An antenna based on a transverse slotted rectangular waveguide design is realized in a substrate integrated waveguide structure and simulated in XFdtd EM Simulation Software.
This example uses XFdtd to simulate the performance of a low cost, chipless RFID system. The system is validated using two cross-polarized log periodic dipole arrays as the send and receive devices.
This video is a tutorial that shows a rectangular waveguide being built using XF’s modeling techniques.
This short video clip highlights the waveguide ports feature in XF.
