Phased Array Design Toolbox v2.5



10 Feb 2009 (Updated )

A toolbox allowing rapid definition and evaluation of 2D and 3D phased array antennas.

% Single rectangular patch
% Freq = 2.45GHz
% Er   = 3.48 (Rogers 4350)
% h    = 1.6mm
% Shows directivity calculation, 
% multiple theta cuts and 3D pattern.
