Electromagnetic Simulation of Antennas Installed Inside Vehicles: An Automotive EMC Approach

From 2012 Automotive Simulation World Congress: Electronics has become a large part of a vehicle, for infotainment (multimedia, audio, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS) as well as on-board diagnostics (OBD). Proper installment of antennas is a challenge not only due to antenna performance, but also to EMI between components and systems. This presentation illustrates how electromagnetic simulation can help address all of these issues, with details on evaluating performance of antennas inside the vehicle and performing certification tests of automotive EMC standards (like ISO 11451-2) using ANSYS tools.
