EM simulation software introduces matching network design

Remcom has announced matching network tuning in the latest release of XFdtd® 3D electromagnetic simulation software, enabling users to easily adjust component values to meet design goals and understand the behavior of a circuit.

The addition of an analysis workbench in XFdtd’s schematic editor further expands the software’s toolset for comprehensive matching network design. The workbench’s intuitive sliders enable rapid manipulation of inductor and capacitor values to reveal the impact of various combinations in real time. This immediacy makes additional analysis effortless while resulting in a more thorough understanding of how the circuit will behave. Intermediate states may be saved without changing the base schematic; final states can then be added to a new operating mode or committed to the schematic permanently.

In addition to simplifying the process of identifying a favorable match that meets or exceeds performance requirements, the tuning functionality is valuable for analyzing the matching network’s sensitivity to component tolerance. Use cases include fixed band matching for devices that use a single band as well as tunable matching for devices that must switch between bands.

Jeff Barney, XFdtd product manager, said, “Remcom continues to broaden XFdtd’s capability for matching network design. The slider bar mechanism is a familiar approach for calibrating values and was developed with maximum usability in mind.”

A full-featured electromagnetic simulation solver, XFdtd outpaces other methods in efficiency as the number of unknowns increases. XF 3D EM simulation software includes full-wave, static, bio-thermal, optimization, and circuit solvers to tackle a wide variety of applications, including antenna design and placement, biomedical and SAR, EMI/EMC, microwave devices, radar and scattering, automotive radar, and more.  It also works with ray-tracing products from Remcom to provide thorough simulation capability at the low-, middle-, and high-end of the electromagnetic spectrum.
