What is µWave Wizard?
The µWave Wizard software suite offers synthesis and optimization tools. Its built-in Hybrid Solvers are developing tools combining “several engines under one hood”. This concept takes advantage of the combined strength of individual solvers. Hybrid Solvers subdivide complex structures into components which can be individually simulated using designated solvers best suited for the task.
Instead of using the conventional approach of drawing a complex structure entirely in 3D, user defined elements can be cascaded with predefined library elements in a schematic. Each element is fully described by its modal scattering matrix. By cascading simulated RF performance of all individual components, the frequency response of the complex structure can be accurately predicted.
Libraries can contain single elements such as irises, cavities and junctions but also complex structures such as OMTs, polarizers and horns. All elements are parameterized, enabling users to compose initial designs or introduce modifications in short time. Parameterization also allows users to optimize complex structures in order to meet challenging specifications.
For verification purposes, the hybrid solver results can quickly be verified with the built-in FEM solver. A simple mouse click will compute the cascaded assembly as one huge 3D-FEM object without a change and without additional effort in the construction.
Rapid design capability together with fast execution speeds has proven to shorten the development cycle for RF components. These inherent benefits of µWave Wizard will result in quick return on your investment.
