XFdtd Tutorial Video: Bow Tie Antenna Design

This video tutorial series helps XFdtd users to create and analyze a broadband antenna.  The series will guide you through XF's antenna design process, with each video highlighting key steps and features.

Learn to:

  • Create a bow tie antenna geometry by using the polygon tool to define the sheet body.
  • Assign a PEC material to the bow tie in order to to define the antenna's electromagnetic properties.
  • Add a voltage source with 300 ohm resistor to represent the antenna's connection to a generator.
  • Verify the grid and enable XACT mesh.
  • Use a far zone sensor to save the 3-D radiation pattern during simulation.
  • Run the simulation with the specified frequencies of interest at 6.7 and 20 GHz.
  • View the simulation's S-parameter, far zone gain, and impedance results.
