Optenni Lab 5.0 released as well as a new module for antenna arrays

Optenni Lab version 5.0 has now been released and it is available for download for all customers with a valid maintenance contract. The main new features in this release are:

  • Improved radiation pattern visualization: polar and Cartesian cuts, 2D pseudocolor plots, user plots, 3D plots and visualization of polarization ellipses
  • Subcircuits compatible with circuit synthesis
  • IC-compatible lossy inductor/capacitor models
  • Improved links from EM simulators to Optenni Lab

Furthermore, we are proud to introduce a new product in the Optenni Lab family: the Array Module. The new module has the following functionalities:

  • Calculation and optimization of the array pattern using the array factor approach (ignoring element coupling) or full array analysis using all radiation pattern and S parameter data of the array
  • Canonical, interactively tunable solutions, using progressive phase shifts and several amplitude tapering schemes
  • Calculation of the beam scanning range (also know as total scan pattern) and its cumulative distribution function
  • Optimization of the array beams for beam direction, beam width, sidelobe levels, nulls, active reflection coefficient and total system efficiency
  • Optimization for the array matching together with the beam properties, i.e., considering the active element impedance
  • Support for dual-polarized arrays

Please be in contact with our sales team at info@optenni.com if you would like to evaluate Optenni Lab 5.0 and its new array module.

Optenni at IMS

Please come to chat with us during the online virtual exhibition of the International Microwave Symposium (IMS), August 4-6. The presentations and material will also be available on demand between 4 August – 30 September 2020. We would be glad to discuss with you of our brand new array and beamforming optimization capabilities!

An industrial workshop on "Analytical vs. numerical techniques for beamforming optimization in phased arrays" presented by Optenni's Sales Engineer Joni Lappalainen will also be available. Please tune in to learn about the following topics:

  • Theory behind analytical beamforming techniques and required approximations to utilize them
  • Reliability of the analytical solutions in different scenarios: where do they excel and where do they fail?
  • How numerical beamforming techniques can be used to obtain robust operation of non-ideal arrays

We are looking forward to greeting you online!
