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
