Sonnet Suites Applications
Sonnet Suites is best suited to design challenges involving predominantly planar (3D planar) circuits and antennas. 3D planar circuits consist of layers of metal traces embedded in stratified dielectric material. These circuits may also include vias and vertical metal sheets (z-directed strips). Sonnet Pro allows any number of of dielectric/metal layers including multiple user defined metal types and dielectric materials. Some examples of 3D planar circuits include MMIC, RFIC, coplanar waveguide (CPW) , LTCC, PCB (single and multiple layers) and patch antennas.
