This algorithm allows the specification of the array directly. Antenna Magus does not adjust the array layout at all to achieve specific electrical objectives. It is useful to use this to evaluate a custom array layout, using the array routines in Antenna Magus. The elements of the array are arranged in the x-y plane, centered on the z-axis.An example of a customized circular array distribution.
The number of elements in the array, as well as the radius of the array may be specified.
More information about how the array synthesis tool should be used can be found in ‘Antenna Array Synthesis in Antenna Magus’ and in ‘Help: How do I use the Array Synthesis tool?’ (located in the Antenna Magus information browser). The latter article also describes the different excitation tapers in more detail, and provides references for further research.
