The Center for Wireless Networking (CWIN) of Electronics and Communication Engineering department organized a one day workshop on “Antenna design and Simulation using ANSYS HFSS” on 06/03/17. The resource person Mr. Sudheer Kumar Vempala,Application Engineer, ARK Info Solutions handled the entire session on antenna design and development. There were 50 participants attended the workshop. The main objective of the program is to know the role of ANSYS HFSS in design and development of antenna virtually. ANSYS HFSS is 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulation software for designing and simulating high-frequency electronic products such as antennas, antenna arrays, RF or microwave components, high-speed interconnects, filters, connectors, IC packages and printed circuit boards.
It integrates simulation, visualization, solid modeling, and automation that can be used in various fields such as to design high-frequency, high-speed electronics found in communications systems, radar systems, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), satellites, internet-of-things (IoT) products and other high-speed RF and digital devices. It is an easy design tool to learn and to address diverse solutions to 3D EM problems is quickly and accurately obtained. HFSS is the leading tool for research and virtual design prototyping, which reduces design cycle time and enhance the design reliability and performance. It gives an opportunity for participants from academic institutions, industry professionals and researchers to discuss and develop a model using ANSYS. This workshop comprises design, simulation and fabrication of basic RF antennas like dipole, Helical and microstrip antenna. Also includes microwave devices such as planar transmission lines, antennas, couplers, filters, etc. Finally the event came to an end with a better understanding of ANSYS HFSS tool and its importance in designing environment.
