Simulation of complex microwave circuits presents a challenge for modern computational software. Using circuit level analysis is recommended option for the starting calculations in order to get results quickly. In circuit solvers, all circuit elements are modeled by predefined library components whose calculations are performed faster than calculations in full-wave EM analysis, even over a wide frequency range, practically on-the-fly.
WIPL-D Microwave is fast, accurate and easy-to-use software tool, what is proofed by several simulation examples. WIPL-D Microwave is compatible with many other software tools because of supported Touchstone file import. It is integrated with WIPL-D EM solver, WIPL-D Optimizer and WIPL-D Time Domain Solver.
The examples of circuit designs include single-stub tuner with rectangular waveguides (matched at 10 GHz), Diplexer operating at 2 GHz and 2.2 GHz, and Chebyshev impedance transformer in coaxial technology from 2 GHz up to 8.5 GHz. Computer required for these simulations is any standard desktop or laptop PC.
