Anten’it Library Software workflow:

Export 3D STEP files, import them into any electromagnetics simulation tool, enter the material properties, assign ports, arrange the simulation settings

Export CST Studio models and simulate directly with your CST Studio software

Export IMST Empire XPU models and simulate directly with your CST Studio software


What is Anten’it Library Software ?  

Anten’it is the name of a product family which is based on a brick-based antenna and microwave component design methodology. There are re-usable building blocks where you can build your structures with your hands and iterate them easily.

Anten’it Library is a software to use Anten’it products easily. There are more than 200 brick-based antenna models and more than 100 microwave component models in the software. Depending on the Anten’it product you have, the related part of the software is activated.  Our users can design and model their structures in the simulation environment and then build with the real Anten’it blocks.

There is a theoretical antenna radiation pattern calculation part and a filter toolbox in the software.


What makes Anten’it different from any other training kit and prototyping tool ?  

Anten’it is the only kit allowing students to design their antennas or microwave components and iterate by their hands. Students design and build their structures, iterate by using the re-usable bricks and learn actively. They can use the simulation results and observe the difference between the simulated and the measured results.

Engineers need to prototype their antennas and microwave components before the series production. Anten’it is the only re-usable prototyping tool including the metal blocks, 3 different kinds of dielectric blocks with 2.6, 4.4 and 8 dielectric constants, ground planes and connectors. Engineers have both the required material and the blocks to create their structures practically. They can test their ideas in the laboratory in a short duration. The re-usability of the blocks makes them useful for a long time in many different projects.

Anten’it Library Software Details are in the PDF document below:

Anten’it Library Software Datasheet

Anten’it Library Software Design Case Study-1:

*There are more case study example in the PDF file.

The need of a 1.5-2.3 GHz omnidirectional antenna

This example is valid for 3 kits:

Anten’it Antenna Research Kit Anten’it Antenna Design and Prototyping Kit Anten’it Multi-Antenna Kit

1. Click on the “Anten’it Antenna Research Kit/ Anten’it Antenna Design and Prototyping Kit/ Anten’it Multi-Antenna Kit” button on the “Kits” page.

2. There are three sections on the following page. The “datasheet booklet” and “antenna building instructions” documentation is on the left side where single brick models are on the right side of the page. We need to click in the middle for “Antenna and Waveguide Component Models” button.

3. There are different antenna types and waveguide component types on the following page. We find the “Sleeve Monopole Antennas”and click on it.

4. There is a list of sleeve monopole antennas working at different frequencies. By checking the list, we find that 007-SLMON-062-12-80-041-028 antenna works between 1393 MHz to 2368 MHz, which covers our 1.5-2.3 GHz bandwidth requirement.

5. On the left side of the link, there is a datasheet PDF of this antenna. The results belong to the measured results. We check if this antenna is appropriate for our application.

6. When we click on the antenna code, the “Download Page” opens. First we click on “Select Download Path” and select where we want to download the files. There is a 3D CAD file option for STEP file format. We​ can import this file into any simulation software and use “Material Properties” on the “Antenna and Waveguide Components” page. Material names are written in all the component names within the STEP files. We just need to assign the material properties, ports and arrange the simulation settings like frequency, mesh properties etc.

Downloading CST Studio and IMST Empire XPU are the other options where we can directly download a model file with all material properties, ports and simulation settings. We need to have a license for these EM simulation tools to simulate the model files.

7. We can import the 3D CAD files into any simulation tool and simulate it. There are also “Antenna Building Instructions” parts on the left side of the “Sleeve Monopole Antenna” page. Even if we are not an antenna engineer, we can follow the guidelines and build the antenna. The results were already on the datasheets.

8. We can build the real antenna with the kit and use it in our project.
