The goal of this paper is a thorough investigation of the quality of the software tools widely used nowadays in the field of planar antenna analysis and synthesis. Six simulation tools, five well-known commercial ones and one in-house developed, are confronted with each other for four different planar antennas. It is crucial to point out that all possible efforts have been done to guarantee the most optimal use of each of the software packages, to study in detail any discrepancies between the solvers, and to assess the remaining simulation challenges. The study clearly highlights the importance of understanding EM simulation principles and their inherent limitation for antenna designers. Finally, some designing guidelines are provided, which also can simplify the initial selection of EM solvers.
