08 Scripting and extended evaluation of HF applications

  • How does scripting work in HFSS? 
  • Exercise on scripting in HFSS 
  • Construction of an RFID antenna using HFSS scripting and DXF import 
  • Explanations of evaluation quantities for HF coils 

Due to increasingly demanding requirements in terms of packaging, data rates and development time, the use of high-frequency electromagnetic 3D field simulation is indispensable for the development of antennas and electronics. ANSYS HFSS is the industry standard here.  
Using practical examples, we will teach you everything you need to know to use ANSYS HFSS successfully: software operation, physical and numerical modeling and efficient workflows. 

This seminar is aimed at development engineers looking to get into the simulation of high-frequency electromagnetic systems such as antennae, connectors, high-speed signal conductor tracks, or RF components, in order to make useful forecasts at the design stage or to carry out diagnostic analyses for troubleshooting tasks.

The seminar enables you to predict the behavior of the high-frequency fields of your products before the first prototype is made. It will allow you to decide whether it is good enough and to find out where it can be improved.

Do you have questions on the training or the eLearning?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on seminar fees, the billing address, hotel recommendations, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information on how to get to the venue. We recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to help you change your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a seminar still has free places, it can be booked.

When do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

The following time difference to GMT during summer/winter time applies to the individual training providers:

Can I test the eLearning offer without obligation?

To get a clear impression of our online learning format, we offer you a trial allowing you access to the starting module of an eLearning seminar of your choice. No costs, no cancellation period or anything similar. Moreover, with this free test access you can check all the technical requirements for a smooth learning process. You can easily request the free module from any eLearning course.

How much time should I allow for an eLearning course?

Each online seminar day comprises four eLearning modules. You should ideally allow 90 to 120 minutes of uninterrupted learning time for each module. This will allow you to acquire the knowledge provided by a module and to consolidate it through quiz questions and Ansys exercises. By dividing each module into micro learning units, you can also make good use of smaller time windows, such as on your commute.

For how long can I access the learning content?

A prerequisite for using the learning contents of booked eLearning seminars is the possession of an access to the CADFEM learning platform. This access is valid for 12 months and can be extended annually. This allows you to decide how long you want to have access to your numerous videos, PDF documents and quiz questions.
