Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
Antenna Magus is the first antenna design tool of its kind. Its huge searchable collection of antennas can be searched to find, design and export models of designed antennas to FEKO. Antenna Magus is a software tool that helps antenna engineers accelerate the design process.
It is suitable for a broad range of applications, because of the large number of antennas in its database which can all be designed to user specifications by Antenna Magus. Its feature set is targeted at aiding engineers to get to the customization phase of an antenna design quickly and reliably. Validated, parametric models of the initial design are exported seamlessly into FEKO where customization and optimization can be done.
These features simplify the day-to-day work of antenna designers and engineers that create electromagnetic models, ensuring that projects are completed within specification and on time. The combination of Antenna Magus with FEKO also provides a powerful solution for antenna placement analysis.
Representative models obtained from Antenna Magus can easily be placed onto a platform in FEKO, for comprehensive performance analysis of the antenna in its operating environment.
