AntSyn: Antenna Synthesis Module

AntSyn™ is an automated antenna design, synthesis, and optimization tool that takes antenna engineering requirements as input and produces antenna designs as outputs. AntSyn was designed by antenna engineers to be used by all levels of experience, from experts to those who are relatively new to antenna design.

The growing demand for wireless connectivity requires antenna solutions that are optimized for system performance, cost, and size. And with the expected demand for design experience greatly exceeding the current supply of antenna engineers, an antenna synthesis approach is just what the market needs.

Note:  AntSyn is generally licensed as cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS)  however other options are available. Contact your local NI AWR software specialist for further information.
