New features, extensions and improvements:

  • The Array Synthesis Tool has been extended to allow the use of multiple element patterns per array and to allow the direct use of element patterns of existing antenna designs in the collection.
  • The Basic Array Operators have been expanded to include a Mirror Operator with a copy and phase shift option.
  • The existing Basic Rotation and Translation operators have been updated to include a copy option with a progressive phase shift.
  • The Value Compare Table, previously only available in design mode, is now also available in the Compare Window.
  • The functionality of the Value Compare Table in the Compare Window has also been extended to allow the selection of a reference in the table. When a reference is selected, other values of the same unit type will show a percentage value indicating the difference between the value and the selected reference.
  • It is now possible to calculate near-fields for a design that was previously estimated without NFS enabled. A button labelled Calculate NFS now has been added for such cases.
  • The Export Macro functionality has been expanded to allow only a selection of all available variables to be exported.
  • Design Range Extrapolation has been expanded to objectives in the Materials/ Physical Properties group, which includes substrate height, relative permittivity, etc.


New antennas and extensions:

  •  4-Horn monopulse feed
  •  Dual tapered monopole within a cavity resonator
  •  Rectangular slotted broadband patch
  •  Planar quarterwave open slot antenna
