The horn antenna synthesis tool performs a simultaneous optimization of the tracking and telecommunication performances of a horn antenna. The design process is simplified by an initial synthesis of the horn geometry based on closed-form expressions that are available from technical literature. Such expressions typically require specification of some basic performance parameters such as frequency range, minimum gain (peak and illumination taper), XPD and aperture efficiency.
The synthesis tool based on µWave Wizard's™ Body Of Revolution (BOR) elements supports following profiles:
The µWave Wizard™ is capable to calculate the following horn electrical performance parameters:
The Performance parameters can be used as part of equations and for optimization.
