At the beginning of 2021 FlowCAD had called for participation in the Antenna challenge. A non-optimal antenna was mounted on the demo board, which was to be simulated and improved with the help of AWR Microwave Office. FlowCAD provided data and a free trial version of AWR software.
The challenge was well received by the industry, especially the idea of doing something meaningful in times of Corona. A large number of interesting proposals were submitted, leaving the FlowCAD jury spoilt for choice when it came to making a decision.
FlowCAD would like to thank all participants once again for their keen interest and submission of excellent work.
Dr.-Ing. Sven Grunwald, research associate at TU Dresden, is the winner of AWR Antenna Challenge and thus Antenna Designer of the Year 2021.
His work stood out among the entries for its technical accuracy and detailed documentation.» Optimization of a Wifi antenna, by Sven Grunwald
