Hello,

Did someone experience with simulation of RF PCBs (e.g. GPS).
The signal propagation chain looks like this:
Antenna GPS --> [matching NW] --> LNA [matching NW] --> SW filter [matching NW] --> GPS module (e.g. from u-blox)
All modules in such chain (except matching networks and antenna) have either Spice models either S-parameters.
Matching networks are RLC chains.
Antenna is 3D object.

What EM tool matches best such kind of tasks:

  • ANSYS Electromagnetics
  • EMpro (from Agilent)
  • CST Studio
  • Sonnet suite
  • FEKO
  • etc

Thanks in advance

Regards

Pavel
