Optenni Lab 3.2 released

We are pleased to announce the availability of version 3.2 of the Optenni Lab matching circuit synthesis and optimization software. The new version contains e.g. the following major features and improvements:

  • Support for the Anritsu ShockLine MS46121A vector network analyzer
  • Support for Copper Mountain Technologies vector network analyzers
  • Speed-up of optimization using library components during network analyzer measurements
  • Obtain a single snapshot measurement from a network analyzer
  • Graphical tuner state annotation in the circuit view
  • Adding user-defined frequency bands to frequency selection
  • Easy access to recently used projects using File\Open Recent Project

We would like to highlight the support for new vector analyzers from Anritsu and Copper Mountain Technologies. Both companies offer new affordable miniature 1-port network analyzers which are about the size of a deck of cards and compact 2-port network analyzers about the size of a laptop computer. These network analyzers do not have any user interface themselves, but they are connected via a USB cable to a computer which runs the user interface software. And then you can easily analyze the measured data from these network analyzers in Optenni Lab and optimize your matching circuit in real time based on the measured data in various operation conditions and physical environments, for example next to user’s hand and head.

Check out our recent press releases with Anritsu and Copper Mountain Technologies and a video demonstration in European Microwave Week.

Link from Remcom XFdtd to Optenni Lab

Remcom and Optenni are happy to announce a new link from Remcom's XFdtd 3D electromagnetic simulator to Optenni Lab. Using a macro command the simulated impedance data can be transferred from XFdtd to Optenni Lab for impedance matching. Once the topology is chosen and physically laid out on the PCB, XFdtd’s Circuit Element Optimizer completes the matching network design process by determining the optimal component values using full wave FDTD simulation, taking electromagnetic phenomena, such as coupling, into account.

Take a look at the Remcom press release and a video presentation for more information.
