Antenna Design and 3D Electromagnetic Simulations

NOVELIC provides support for the development of RF applications in the automotive, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, radar sensor and module, antenna system design and modeling, and many other fields. The antenna team works closely with other NOVELIC departments to develop custom sensors and solutions for specific applications such as NoraSens, GuideR, human detection, seat occupancy, and others.


NOVELIC offers a full scope of electromagnetic service modeling and design for:

  • Planar and metallic antenna systems
  • Microwave and mmWave transitions and packaging
  • 3D-model lump model extractions from high-frequency structures
  • 3D EMC & field propagation design

NOVELIC also provides mmWave radar and communication test services for:

  • Radar cross-section simulation
  • Radar target classification
  • ADAS emulation for radar targets
  • Antenna measurement, validation, qualification

We create different antenna designs, covering commercial wireless solutions in licensed and unlicensed ISM frequency bands up to 120 GHz. Depending on frequency bands, gains of up to 30 dBi can be achieved.

We have experience in design tools such as:

  • EM solvers:
    • CST Studio Suite
    • ANSYS HFSS
    • WIPL-D Pro CAD
    • ADS Momentum

  • Circuit solvers:
    • ADS
    • AWR Microwave Office
