SWAN™ now supports ridge waveguide technology

Following the many requests and expressions of interest, the new version of SWAN™ now also supports ridge waveguide technology.

In SWAN™ it is now possible to extract the model of a slot on a single-ridge waveguide, perform the design of a complete planar array, and analyze its performance, in the same way it is already done for rectangular waveguides and substrate integrated waveguides (SIWs).

Ridge waveguide technology allows for wider bandwidths as well as beam steering capabilities, yet maintaining high performance in terms of antenna efficiency, light weight, low profile, robustness and high power handling.

A design example showing the potential of this technology can be found here.

The new version has been released on January 17th 2022.
