5G will likely induce a fundamental shift in a number of markets, including communication, automotive, Internet of Things (IoT), and virtual reality. Simulation and design engineers can address the architecture required to design applications that will bring the network to life using multiphysics modeling. The latest features introduced in the RF Module, a high-frequency electromagnetic (EM) simulation add-on tool that’s now available in COMSOL Multiphysics version 5.4, will ultimately lead to more efficient product design for RF/microwave engineers. Highlights include:

  • Postprocessing workflows and variables for antenna-array radiation-pattern analysis
  • Simulation domain transformation utilizing time-to-frequency and frequency-to-time fast Fourier transform (FFT)
  • Expanded material library for microwave and millimeter-wave (mmWave) circuit boards
  • Application library updates through the deployment of commercially available connectors in the RF Part Library
