This measurement is nearly identical to the “E-Theta Radiation Pattern (Sweep Theta): PPC_ETheta” 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 and Cadence® AWR® Analyst™ 3D FEM EM analysis software simulator are supported for this annotation.

 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.)
