In December 2021, just weeks before Verizon and AT&T were set to enable their new radio access networks in the 5G mid-band spectrum (also known as C-Band), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) and a statement notifying operators of potential 5G interference… Read More
Dan is joined by Dr. Matthew Commens, product manager Ansys. Matt discusses an upcoming webinar series on the inner workings and capabilities of Ansys simulation software. How the series began, the impact and benefits and a view of the future are all covered.
In our previous blog installments, we examined the ingredient for modeling the potential for interference between a 5G C-band base station and an aviation radar altimeter. Using candidate emissions models for the transmitter, wideband susceptibility models for a candidate radar altimeter receiver and antenna and propagation… Read More
The new 5G C-band service is now up and running in the U.S., and subscribers are finally starting to see some of the promise of 5G. The new C-band services are primarily in spectrum allocations between 3 and 4 GHz, providing the wider channel allocation bandwidths necessary to deliver significantly higher data throughput. At the… Read More
Automatic adaptive meshing in Ansys HFSS is a critical component of its finite element method (FEM) simulation process. Guided by Maxwell’s Equations, it efficiently refines a mesh to deliver a reliable solution, guaranteed. Engineers around the world count on this technology when designing cutting-edge electronic products.… Read More
There has been a lot of attention in the news recently about AT&T and Verizon rolling out their first implementations of sub-6GHz 5G radio access networks (RAN). Notably, the FAA and airline industries have voiced serious concerns about potential safety issues for aircraft autopilot and landing systems. As a result of these… Read More
Ansys and Keysight wanted to see if they could answer the question, If we put virtual cellphones in different locations in a city, can we predict what kind of 5G signal we’re going to get in those locations? To find out, they created and tested a detailed virtual model of a city, including a variety of 5G antennae, receivers, and transmitters… Read More
I would contend there is no job quite like working as a support engineer for a simulation tool like Ansys HFSS. Such a role forces an engineer to understand technology in breadth and depth like no other because HFSS is applied to such a broad range of applications and products throughout the world. My own introduction to HFSS began … Read More
So you’ve decided to buy a new car? First you need to research, compare, and test drive before you finally get to drive that shiny new car home. Engineering teams choosing their preferred electromagnetic analysis tool face similar challenges. Historically, electromagnetic problems and analysis tools were relegated to a few … Read More
Compute environments have advanced significantly over the past several years. Microprocessors have gotten faster by including more cores, available RAM has increased significantly, and the cloud has made massive distributed computing more easily and cheaply available.
HFSS has evolved to take advantage of these new capabilities,… Read More
