Create circle centered at origin on X-Y plane


Use the antenna.Circle object to create a circle centered at the origin and on the X-Y plane. You can use antenna.Polygon to create single-layer or multi-layered antennas using pcbStack.



circle = antenna.Circle
circle = antenna.Circle(Name,Value)



circle = antenna.Circle creates a circle centered at the origin and on the X-Y plane.


circle = antenna.Circle(Name,Value) sets properties using one or more name-value pair. For example, circle = antenna.Circle('Radius',0.2) creates a circle of radius 0.2 m. Enclose each property name in quotes.

Name of circle, specified a character vector.

Example: 'Name','Circle1'

Example: circle.Name= 'Circle1'

Data Types: char

Cartesian coordinates of center of circle, specified a 2-element vector with each element measured in meters.

Example: 'Center',[0.006 0.006]

Create and view circle using antenna.Circle and view it.

c1 = antenna.Circle
c1 = 
  Circle with properties:

         Name: 'mycircle'
       Center: [0 0]
       Radius: 1
    NumPoints: 30


Create a circle with a radius of 4 m.

c2 = antenna.Circle('Radius',4)
c2 = 
  Circle with properties:

         Name: 'mycircle'
       Center: [0 0]
       Radius: 4
    NumPoints: 30

Create circle with a radius of 1 m. The center of the circle is at [1 0].

circle1 = antenna.Circle('Center',[1 0],'Radius',1);

Create a rectangle with a length of 2 m and a width of 4 m centered at the origin.

rect1 = antenna.Rectangle('Length',2,'Width',2);

Add the two shapes together using the + function.

polygon1 = circle1+rect1
polygon1 = 
  Polygon with properties:

        Name: 'mypolygon'
    Vertices: [60x3 double]
