  1. Closed: Re: Diagonalization of Impedance Matrix

    I think it may be instructive to look at diagonalization of the matrix in the first place.

    If we have such a diagonalization, then: [Z]I = Iλ, with λ being the eigenvalues and I being the...
  2. Closed: Re: Regarding RF PCB layout design in my company product, some questions

    My guess would be [in the absence of specifics] that the antenna ground plane section plus inductor is acting as a half-wavelength (free-sapce) resonator, where most of the phase is being provided by...
  3. Closed: Re: Microstrip line and ground on same layer

    I believe what you're looking to do is match the characteristic impedance of the microstrip with that of the CPW-like mode of a conductor-backed CPW. You can find approximate solutions in works like...
  4. Closed: Re: Diagonalization of Impedance Matrix

    Diagonalization is only possible iff there exists a complete set of eigenvectors.

    Is [Z] a Hermitian matrix?

    See Horn and Johnson's Matrix Analysis.

    Hi Nhera,

    I'm not aware of any way around your posted issues. The objects are each created with a "history"; you can view/edit these in the middle pane when the project is selected.

    The above responses have not asked a simple question: the capacitance of what? Please provide a circuit model.

    Closed: Re: S parameters in HFSS

    The S21 and S12 represent the power travelling from port 1 to port 2, and vice-versa. They are the same, since the device is reciprocal (the power sees the same effect travelling either way; the same...
  8. Closed: Re: Circular polarization using coupler

    Unfortunately, the issue is then your antenna, and not the excitation. Is it a circular patch?
  9. Closed: Re: Circular polarization using coupler

    Hi gayathrim,

    Yes, it is possible. Using either lumped ports or wave ports, you can set the sources excitation phase under "HFSS"->"Fields"->"Edit Sources...".

    Good luck!
  10. Closed: Re: Parallel Plate Capacitor using HFSS

    Hi G_V,

    The DC static fields inside the capacitor should be similar to those of the transverse cross-section of the PPW mode. A lumped/wave port should excite both, but these also are a 50 Ohm...
  11. Closed: Re: Parallel Plate Capacitor using HFSS

    Hi G_V,

    There might be some confusion here. How and why are you trying to excite the capacitor? Why would you want different modes inside of it?
  12. Closed: Re: Parallel Plate Capacitor using HFSS

    Welcome G_V,

    In order to excite a TEM guided-wave mode, the port needs to contact both plates; this is why in your case it must be in either y-z or x-y. A lumped port is used for internal...
  13. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: [DISCUSSION] Maximum ram usage for Sonnet/HFSS simulation

    The structure in that case consisted of a number of small 100 um features, but was cubic and approximately 20mm on each size.

    I still can't overemphasize what has been said: more RAM doesn't fix...
  14. Closed: Re: How i can applied a lumped port on coaxial cable at HFSS?

    Hi hanadi_alsalti,

    Usually what I do in such cases is integrate the lumped port into the ground plane. Subtract a hole out of the ground plane at your feed location, and put a circular sheet there...
  15. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: [DISCUSSION] Maximum ram usage for Sonnet/HFSS simulation

    I use an off-the-shelf server with 1TB of RAM for simulating large arrays of complex structures. One HFSS instance; the machine has 24 cores so I can usually run up to 48 simultaneous parametric...
  16. Closed: Re: How to get s paramter from finite structure in HFSS? (metmaterial)

    It's actually not a silly question: incident plane wave is probably the hardest to work with; because you have to calculate the scattering parameters yourself.

    The easiest route from here is to...
  17. Closed: Re: How to get s paramter from finite structure in HFSS? (metmaterial)

    Welcome 1dbduddls,

    I assume for an absorber the mode you're interested in is a free-space plane wave. For finite simulations, you pretty much always want driven modal simulations. In the case of...
  18. Closed: Re: Broadband Horn Antenna Input Impedance Matching

    How did you conclude this? What equation did you use?
  19. Closed: Re: About Stripline design questions

    Hi bejing,

    Depending on you feeding mechanism, it could be easier to excite unwanted modes, yes. What are you using?
  20. Closed: Re: HFSS simulating an LC circuits, and understanding ports

    Welcome itsdik,

    It looks like you want to use a lumped port -- placement depends how you want to excite your structure. Is the source in series, or parallel, with this resonator?

    Hi musmanm,

    What are you referring to by "flat phase"?
  22. Closed: Re: Unitary property of scattering matrix

    Hi promach,

    Mathematically speaking, a unitary matrix is one which satisfies the property [S]^* = [S]^{-1}. Re-arranging, we see that [S]^* [S] = [I], where [I] is the identity matrix.
  23. Closed: Re: [Basics] Why is (RF) current "flowing back" underneath the "forward line" ?

    I feel like some clarification may be in order. You're talking about transmission-line modes, in which the currents on the conductors (in this case, the microstrip and ground plane) are balanced...

    Hmm, I havent used that one, although I did use the D104 a bit.

    Did assigning the board outline layer help?

    Closed: Re: Patch antenna using lpkf

    You probably also need to assign the dielectric to the "Board Outline" layer.

    What milling machine do you have? I may be able to send you a template file.
