What is WASP-NET?

WASP-NET® stands for Waveguide and Antenna Synthesis Program for Networks. WASP-NET helps you to get extraordinary time-saving benefits for your professional electromagnetic (EM) CAD designs and optimizations while not compromising full-wave accuracy and general 3D structure flexibility

High design efficiency and fast product output are increasingly mission-critical for microwave, antenna, space and communication industries. Our hybrid EM CAD and optimization tool, WASP-NET, helps reduce time to market through high simulation and optimization efficiency and accuracy.

Optimization Efficiency

Engineers can use WASP-NET to complete design tasks quickly through direct, fast and accurate full-wave overall EM optimization. The simulation speed of WASP-NET enables full design space exploration through a high number of optimization iterations in a short time. It enables the rapid solution of challenging design problems.

Solver Technology

The hybrid multi-solver technology of WASP-NET uniquely combines mode-matching (MM) speed with finite-element (FE) flexibility and method-of-moment (MoM) radiation computation efficiency, accelerated by domain-decomposition method (DDM), fast multipole method (FMM), adaptive integral method (AIM), adaptive cross-evaluation (ACE), iterative physical optics (IPO), and physical theory of diffraction (PTD).
Benefits for users are high calculation speed, complete 3D structure flexibility and full-wave accuracy for efficiently optimizing all passive microwave components, antennas and arrays, including feed-networks, directly on rigorous EM level. Market leaders worldwide have acknowledged WASP-NET for over 25 years for solving challenging EM design problems with fast optimizations.

WASP-NET Applications Areas

WASP-NET has design and simulation capabilities in several areas of microwave and RF design

Waveguide Structures

Engineers can efficiently apply WASP-NET to the design and optimization of Waveguide components, such as filters, couplers, diplexers, multiplexers, polarizers, ortho-mode transducers (OMTs), dielectric resonators, and circulators. It enables the processing of large portions of the waveguide structures by the quasi-analytical mode-matching (MM) technique and uses 3D EM only for those parts, which MM cannot handle.
