How to Design 5G and mm-Wave Filters Using AI-Optimized Tuning

We recently authored a blog post, 'How to Design 5G and mm-Wave Filters Using AI-Optimized Tuning' that was hosted on the Ansys blog site.

AI-tuning with Space Mapping Video Tutorials
Videos and Webinars

Your quest to design 5G and mmWave components continues with the AI-tuning Space Mapping feature.

A High-Selectivity D-Band Mixed-Mode Filter Based on the Coupled Overmode Cavities

The following publication has been approved for issue on the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.

AI-tuning Video Tutorials
Videos and Webinars

This video introduces one of the few platforms in the world capable of using AI-based tuning to automatically tune RF filters. The following is a video tutorial series and begins with Part 1 of 2. Before beginning with this tutorial viewers should watch the filter specification analysis video series. These videos review the synthesis process that's required before a designer can start tuning their filters.

Filter Specification Analysis Video Tutorials
Videos and Webinars

The Filter Specification Analysis Tutorial: 'The Synthesis Matrix'. This tutorial video series will show you how to synthesize the matrix using a cloud-based software tool called, SynMatrix.

Support Feature 7: Stray Coupling Analysis
Application Notes

Stray Coupling is unwanted coupling effects, leaking energy between non-adjacent resonators, which may cause either the unbalanced notch level or extra unwanted transmission zeros.

Support Feature 6: Air Breakdown Prediction
Application Notes

The air breakdown is a physical phenomenon due to ionization which is caused by energetic electrons in a high electrical field. Ionization may make a conducting path, allowing a sharp current to increase.

Support Feature 5: Power Handling Prediction
Application Notes

SynMatrix offers engineers a simple calculation on power handling prediction. By inputing relevant filter information, the maximum power handling ability can be predicted; meanwhile, based on input data, the user still can judge if the filter can be breakdown or not under the specific input power.

Support Feature 4: CAT Wideband Application
Application Notes

SynMatrix provides CAT with a proprietary algorithm that has excellent performance in both narrow band and wideband applications.

Support Feature 3: CAT Application
Application Notes

Computer aided tuning was introduced first in the satellite filter industry, and has now been widely adopted to the wireless field. It applies systematic approaches based on either reconstruct filter polynomial, curve fitting or by optimization circuit model to fit and match simulation or measurement responses.

Support Feature 2: Dispersion Function
Application Notes

“Dispersion” is defined as the a distortion due to the different group velocity versus frequency, especially for non-TEM propagation structure such as waveguide and microstripe or wideband application.

Support Feature 1: Fine-tune Function
Application Notes

The fine-tune function is a facility tool to allow the user to fine-tune the matrix until all required targets are met. This tuning function can shift the operation frequency up or down while expanding or narrowing the bandwidth by scaling the matrix. Within the tuning process, the designed centre frequency and bandwidth can be kept.
