5G Base Station Antenna

Ansys Simulation Certification


To enroll in this certification, please visit the Market space.Once enrolled, please complete the courses included in the certifications shown below.Upon completion of the certification requirements, you will be rewarded with access to a digital credential. 5G unlocks a whole new world of ultrafast connectivity – connecting more people and more devices. 5G is changing how we live our lives. Some say over 1.1 billion devices will be connected by 2025. 5G is characterized by high speed, high bandwidth and lower latency. With its new generation of technologies, 5G requires high performing antennas. Ansys digital twin provides the necessary tools to design these antennas. We will use Ansys HFSS for electromagnetic simulation in this series of lectures. Each course in this learning track consists of an introduction, simulation steps and a workshop. You will start with learning the basic concepts relevant to the designing of antennas and arrays using different techniques in Ansys HFSS. We will use the different types of antennas to create an antenna array. You will get detailed information about the 5G dual polarized cross dipole antenna. In addition to this, you will be provided with more details about the 3D component and antenna toolkit (ATK) inside Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT). You will learn how to create a mast platform geometry and its effects on the installed antenna radiation pattern. You will also learn the system level simulation with HFSS SBR+ and study the interaction of the reflected radiated fields. We will introduce the EMIT Datalink for system link analysis. To analyze the thermal profile and heat flow of the antenna model we will use the HFSS-Icepak simulation and provide a detailed electrothermal simulation workflow.
Each course consists of 1 theory-based quiz and 1 simulation-based quiz. The theory quiz is to be completed in 20 mins. and the simulation quiz doesn't have a time limit. Pass criterion for these quizzes is 75 %. You have got up to 5 attempts to pass each quiz. Both theory and simulation quizzes are based on lecture videos and workshops in this learning track.​​

In this course, we will cover some basic concepts which are helpful in designing an antenna. We will demonstrate the creation of the antenna element by using the Ansys HFSS antenna toolkit. We will also cover how to add a parametric sweep for a variable created in HFSS design.

In this course, we will cover the features and uses of the HFSS 3D component. We will use a wire dipole antenna and a rectangular patch antenna to create a 1x2 and a 1x8 array. This course provides detailed steps to create an antenna array from a single unit by using different methods such as the Explicit array method and finite array wizard domain decomposition method (FAWDDM).

In this course, we will introduce the 5G cross dipole antenna and its array. We will illustrate concepts like ‘dual polarization’, ‘spatial diversity’, ‘multipath’, etc., In this course, we will cover the creation of the 3D component of the 5G cross dipole antenna element and the creation of an array using the finite array wizard method. We will also show, how to steer the beam of the antenna array at a particular angle with the help of a parametric sweep.

This course provides the platform analysis using Ansys HFSS SBR+ workflow and detailed steps on the creation of the electrically large platform with the antenna mast. We will use the 5G cross dipole array model which is already created in the previous course. We will also compare the performance of the standalone antenna array with antenna array installed on a mast.

In this course, we will cover the landscape simulation to analyze the effect of reflected radiated fields. We will show the import of map data into HFSS through Spaceclaim. Then we will place one transmitting antenna and one receiving antenna from the antenna toolkit to analyze the effect of buildings, roads, and other obstructions such a large environment. We will introduce EMIT Datalink for system link analysis.

This course introduces the multiphysics electrothermal simulation workflow of a base station antenna array using Icepak which is integrated inside AEDT. We will use the rectangular patch antenna from the antenna toolkit (ATK). This course gives detailed information on how to use the post-processing tool inside of the Icepak to analyze the thermal profile and heat flow.
