A ROBUST CAD TOOL FOR INTEGRATED DESIGN OF UWB ANTENNA SYSTEM

By Z. Zhang and Y. H. Lee

Full Article PDF (323 KB)

Abstract:
This paper proposes a robust Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tool for an Ultra-Wideband (UWB) antenna system which successfully integrates the design of the transmitting antenna, the receiving antenna and the shaping of the transmitted pulse. The distinctive features of this tool include: the efficient characterization of transfer function in terms of an analytical model, the effective evaluation from system point of view and the simultaneous optimization of multiple objectives. Using this tool, an automatic and efficient design can be realized to deliver the UWB antenna system upon the optimal performance.
