Integrated Workflow Between FEKO and Optenni Lab
An integrated workflow between the FEKO 3D electromagnetic simulator and the Optenni Lab matching circuit optimization software has been developed.
After simulating the antenna impedance in FEKO, the S-parameters can be transferred using a Touchstone file to Optenni Lab, where matching circuits can be easily designed and optimized. The optimal matching circuit can be returned to FEKO as a two-port Touchstone file that can be used as a feeding network for further antenna simulations.
