Full Wave Design of a Compact Ka-Band Wideband Orthomode Transducer

On-demand recording now available


In this webinar, Sicilsat® Communications, a company specializing in the design and supply of highly reliable satellite systems, will present how their wideband orthomode transducer (OMT) operating in Ka-Band was designed and optimized using µWave Wizard™ design software, available through the Altair Partner Alliance.

This component, designed for feeding a 7.5 meter monopulse antenna, has been realized as a doubly symmetrical design with four concentric cylinders placed in the center of the structure for improved return loss and bandwidth. In the feed optimization phase, performance goals are achieved in accelerated time, thanks to various very efficient optimizers available in µWave Wizard. Development time was also significantly reduced by taking advantage of fully parameterized components already present in the µWave Wizard component libraries, resulting in a simplified structure with excellent radio frequency (RF) performance, ideally suited for cost efficient manufacturing. The µWave Wizard designed Ka-Band wideband OMT can be exported into other Altair products for post processing, such as the feed component in Altair® Feko® antenna design software.

Designing modern optical systems can be a complex and difficult task. There are many factors that come into play, such as materials, space constraints, performance, and many more. Using optical design and analysis software such as TracePro gives scientists, engineers, and designers the ability to work in a virtual environment during the design process.

Models can be created in TracePro or imported from a CAD program, allowing users to build and test a multitude of designs in a short period of time. Working in TracePro accelerates the development process, reduces cost and improves results. In this webinar, we will look at a few examples of how TracePro can be used to analyze a system and improve its performance.
