3D EM based optimization of filters

The outstanding simulation speed along with an intelligent post processing technique gives a new twist to full wave based filter design. A filter optimization strategy based on the evaluation of a Multi-Port Y-Matrix allows directly accessing and optimizing the filter parameters, as there are the resonant frequencies, the coupling coefficient and the external Qs

2 x 2 MEMS Switch Matrix

This example shows the efficient simulation of a MEMS 2 x 2 switch matrix. All thin metallizations and nitride sheets have been considered for accurate simulation of the MEMS switches. The matrix consists out of 4 SPDT switches, two 90┬░ bends and an isolating RF cross.
