Ansys HFSS SBR+ Indoor Wireless Antenna Placement (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

HFSS SBR+ Indoor Wireless starts with the set up and simulation of antenna near fields and shooting and bouncing ray simulation throughout a house. The student will learn how to import CAD models, assign boundary conditions, and evaluate different antenna sources and results, such as near-field contour plots as well as antenna-to-antenna coupling. Modules 1 and 2 guide the student through the workflow and provide context on efficiency, accuracy and run times. Modules 3 and 4 discuss accuracy compared to full wave techniques with the goal of obtaining far-field patterns used to represent transceivers in complex scenes.



  • No prior HFSS experience required
  • Ansys HFSS for Antenna Design and Ansys HFSS SBR+ Antenna Placement are highly recommended courses.
  • Knowledge of electromagnetics and antenna principles, including near field and far fields, is required.

Target Audience:

Electronic engineers working with wireless devices in consumer home environments, from device design engineers to systems engineers. 

Teaching Method:

The course is entirely based on self-paced video lectures which include workshop examples demonstrated.  Workshop simulation files are provided, and, in most cases, you should follow along with the videos.

Self-paced Learning:

Complete a class on your own schedule at your own pace. Scope is equivalent to Instructor led classes. Includes video lecture, workshops and input files. All our Self-Paced video courses are only available with an Ansys Learning Hub subscription. Register for a subscription using the tab below or contact for more information.
