COMPARISON OF DESIGN SOFTWARE BASED ON MODELING OF MICROSTRIP FILTERS WITH SLOTTED SCREEN
Keywords:microstrip filter, slotted ground plane, Microwave Office, HFSS, EM-simulation.
AbstractA comparative analysis of design programs Microwave Office and HFSS on examples of microstrip filters with slots in the ground plane was performed. The results of numerical modeling of the filters in comparison with experimental data are presented. Microwave Office’s advantages are an intuitive user-friendly interface and ease of development, the availability of extensive elements library which simplifies and speeds up the design process. However Microwave Office has some disadvantages: using of rectangular grid for drawing the object and time of the analysis models. The main advantages of HFSS are a high speed calculation with sufficient accuracy of the results in comparison with experiment. Using tetrahedral shape cells allows to more accurately describe the three-dimensional structures. The disadvantages of this CAD are difficulty of development and complexity of specifying ports. Thus, the system Microwave Office is better to use during the initial modeling. For more accurate results, if data about ports’ dimension are given, system HFSS is preferable.
