XF's post-processing option allows users to combine a schematic and FDTD simulation in order to see steady-state full-wave results with the schematic applied. In order to use this post-processing simulation, users must first run an FDTD simulation that collects S-parameters and discrete frequencies of interest, then create a schematic that includes an FDTD block component.
When a schematic is applied to an FDTD simulation, the following steady-state full-wave results will update:
- Port data including S-parameters, VSWR
- System and radiation efficiencies
- Available, input, dissipated, and radiated powers
- Near field sensors
- Far field sensors
Users can apply a schematic to FDTD results through the Simulations window by choosing Post Processing ❯ Apply Circuit Simulation as the Create Simulation option in the upper-left corner.
In the Create Circuit Post-processing Simulation window that opens, the Name field at the top of the window provides space for a user-defined simulation identifier. This name appears in the Simulations window once the simulation is created, and can be used to filter results in the Results browser.
