First-Time-Right Design of Matching Circuits for Complex Antenna and RF Applications

Presented by: Jaakko Juntunen, Sales Director, Optenni


In antenna and RF design, matching circuits are often needed to widen the operation bandwidth and to increase the performance of wireless systems. However, designing and building the matching circuits is nontrivial as many factors can cause the performance of the manufactured matching circuit to differ from the simulated performance. In the webinar, the sources of the discrepancy between measurements and simulation will be identified. We will demonstrate a first-time-right design flow of matching circuit using the FEKO electromagnetic solver and the Optenni Lab RF Design Automation Platform. The most critical design areas are the accurate representation of the matching circuit layout, using realistic component models, correct calibration and reference plane in measurements and taking the radiation efficiency and multiantenna radiation patterns into account.

Webinar Outline

  • Analysis of the error sources in matching circuit design and simulation
  • Using accurate layout models in matching circuit design
  • Using the correct reference plane in antenna measurements
  • Using radiation patterns to obtain accurate antenna efficiency estimates for multiantenna systems.

Who Should Attend?

The webinar is targeted to wireless engineers who are designing and building impedance matching circuits for their wireless devices and are interested about learning how to speed up their wireless design flow and to enhance the performance of their wireless system.
