Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. has released its Antenna Modeling Design System (AMDS), which is a 3D dedicated design, modeling and verification tool for antenna systems and placement. The AMDS contains intelligent CAD import capabilities, along with the traditional drawing interface, that make it easier and faster to perform 3D EM simulations than with traditional simulators, according to Agilent.
Agilent explained the AMDS reduces design and quality risks by simulating the entire wireless appliance together with its environment. This ensures compliance with regulatory and operator requirements such as over-the-air performance and SAR (specific absorption rate). It also analyses antenna diversity for MIMO (multiple-in-multiple-out).
The AMDS full-wave 3D EM design environment boasts several benefits. The system facilitates cross-functional teamwork between antenna and product designers through the exchange of CAD data, eliminating modeling rework for subsequent design iterations, said Agilent. In addition, it guarantees antenna placement performance by taking the entire physical wireless appliance into account, and improves end-user product performance by introducing real-world interaction with the human body directly into the EM simulation, added the company.
Pricing: AMDS is available now with prices starting at approximately $50,000.
