EM-software Tool

Version 6.6 of the EM-software tool μWave Wizard™ includes a set of new elements that have been developed for the radiation library that exploit the body of revolution (BOR) symmetry of circular waveguide horn antennas. The elements coincide with the specifications for various horn profiles, like vertically and axially corrugated horns, profiled smooth wall, ring loaded and Potter horn profiles. This eases the setup of the entire horn geometry since the process is now carried out automatically inside the element and accelerates the computation for multi-mode and tracking mode applications due to utilization of the BOR symmetry with the mode-matching method. Calculated electromagnetic fields within these elements can either be visualized in longitudinal cuts or the maximum values can be plotted versus frequency. This allows a faster evaluation of power handling capabilities for such structures.
