Need help on Simulating a 60GHz F-form Antenna by HFSS - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Hi all,

I am simulating a 60GHz straight F-form antenna by Ansoft HFSS. I use the low-loss Rogers material(loss tangent is 0.0021) as the board material. This F-form antenna resonates around 61GHz(S11) . However, when I tried to get information on radiation efficiency, it turns out that the radiation efficiency is greater than "1". I don't know what's wrong with my modeling and how to improve it. Could anyone give me some advices? Thank you very much! Welcome to contact me via: hopefully81(at)gmail.com

Kevin

Dear sageme,

Check your radiation box size, it should larger and enclosing your structure. Check the operating frequency, in your case, it should be at least 60GHz. Could you please send a figure for your structure model on HFSS?

Hi imodelit_moderator,

My radiation box is at least quarter-wavelength away from the radiating structure. The solution frequency is set to 61GHz, while the frequency sweep range is from 50GHz to 75GHz. From the S11, this F antenna really resonates around 61GHz. By the way, I don't know how to post a figure here....

Thank you very much!

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Could you please send me your simulation file on marwah.shafee@imodelit.com. Thanks.
