5G Antenna Technology for Smart Products - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V12 I2
The dramatic rise of smart, connected products requires a rapidly increasing communications bandwidth, but the radio frequency spectrum available is growing at a much slower pace than what is needed. One way the fifth generation of cellular wireless technology, 5G, can address this problem is by leveraging beamforming antennas to send different signals to different areas of the cellular network, enabling multiple simultaneous transmissions at the same time on the same frequency. Pivotal Commware is designing the next generation of these beamforming antennas or cellular base stations and other applications, at a fraction of the cost of existing methods. The company’s engineers use ANSYS HFSS to create antenna designs that meet design requirements on the first or second pass, substantially reducing the time required to bring new antennas to market in this highly competitive industry.
