Circuit Driving E-Phi Radiation Pattern (Sweep Theta): PPC_EPhi_CKT


This measurement is nearly identical to the “E-Phi Radiation Pattern (Sweep Theta): PPC_EPhi” measurement, please review this page for specific details. The difference is the measurement setup now references a subcircuit in a schematic rather than a stand alone EM structure. This measurement allows you to view an antenna pattern accounting for the other circuit parameters connected to the EM simulation result.

NOTE: The Cadence® AWR® AXIEM® 3D planar EM analysis simulator is supported for this annotation.


Name Type Range
EM Structure Name Subcircuit 1 to 1000 ports
Excitation circuit Subcircuit N/A
Include Resistive Losses [1] Check box N/A
Include Reflection/Coupling Losses Check box N/A
Phi (degrees) Real -90 to 90
Sweep Angle Step (deg) Real 0.5 to 4.0
Use Interpolated Data Check box N/A
Sweep Freq Frequency See [2]

[1] NOTE: Some solvers do not support the calculation of resistive loss. If the selected solver does not support this option an error message displays if you select it. (EMSight does not support this, AXIEM does.)

[2] These parameters are dynamic; they change based upon which data source is selected. See “Swept Parameter Analysis ” for details on configuring these parameters.
