There is an increasing demand for evaluating a component’s performance in the system environment. The performance of an antenna depends on the platform it is in-stalled on, for example, and the antenna itself might be a system built from various RF components. The importance of the EM system simulation approach becomes obvious when considering the electromagnetic compatibility of a device. The overall performance depends on the interaction of all the components, such as PCBs, cables and housings.
