Antenna Optimization and PCB Shielding with ANSYS HFSS - Presentation
In the smart grid infrastructure, ANSYS HFSS designed the antenna for Silver Spring Networks' technology. ANSYS DesignXplorer finds the best antenna design solutions at two operating frequencies. HFSS-RF gains the best RLC matching for each frequency band. Based on full-board analysis, minimizing the coupling of radiating elements on certain locations were investigated. Silver Spring Networks' board was integrated on the utility meter model. The utility model maintains its own power supply board that can couple with the antenna. The full assembly was simulated and optimized for best antenna location.
