LAPC 2016 is pleased to host two parallel workshops on Wednesday 16th November 2016.  CST hold their workshop at the Electronic and Electrical Engineering building at Loughborough University. This building is next door to the Burleigh Court Hotel.  ANSYS will be holding their workshop at Burleigh Court Hotel.  Both workshops are free to attend but registration must be completed in advance.

ANSYS will be running a FREE workshop this year on HFSS, their gold standard 3-D electromagnetic field solver at Burleigh Court Hotel on Wednesday 16th November 2016.  HFSS software is the industry standard simulation tool for 3-D full-wave electromagnetic field simulation and is essential in for the design of high frequency and high speed component design.  HFSS offers multiple state-of-the-art solver technologies based on either the proven finite element method or the well established integral equation method.  For further details and to register, please click here.


CST and Rohde & Schwarz Workshop

CST and Rohde & Schwarz would like to invite you to attend a FREE workshop titled "Measurement meets Simulation" at LAPC 2016, Loughborough, UK. The full day workshop includes both a hands-on session as well as presentations aimed to give engineers an insight on how to achieve accurate simulations and show best practice guidelines to getting better measurements. The lectures include:

  1. Material property extraction techniques
  2. Calibrating measurement and simulation for accurate comparisons
  3. Common pitfalls in the prototype design cycle
  4. Accurate characterisation of surface mount devices (SMDs) for simulation

The hands-on session gives the participants a chance to experience a design workflow by simulating and measuring selected microwave components, and includes:

  1. Workflow examples of a dual-patch antenna and feed network or a low-pass filter
  2. 3D Modelling and Simulation analysis in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO®
  3. Schematic layout and Simulation analysis in CST DESIGN STUDIO®
  4. Measurement of the prototypes with Rohde & Schwarz test equipment
  5. Comparing simulated and measured results

There will be ample opportunity to discuss technical questions with CST Staff throughout the day. For further details and to register, please click here.
