Single Patch

This section explains how to create a single patch antenna.

When the option is selected, the next panel and a previsualization of the antenna with the parameters on the panel are displayed.

Figure 1. Single Patch panel

Position set the Cartesian coordinates for the position of the antenna. For the antenna, user can select the position with the mouse by selecting the 'Pick' check box and clicking any point in the geometry panel.

Dimensions set the values of the length and width of the patch (Lpatch and Wpatch), the position of the feeding point from the center of the patch (Fdist) as well as the length, width and height of the substrate material (Lsubs, Wsubs and Hsubs).

Layer Properties set the substrate material from the material library of newFASANT.

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.
