An end-To-end smart antenna simulation environment has been created in the Advanced Design System (ADS®) from Agilent Technologies. Because ADS® is able to co-simulate with various other design tools, system implementation becomes much faster. Although a full-blown RF level simulation is possible, the run-Time of the simulation is extremely slow. To improve the speed of the simulation, a base-band version of the antenna array model as well as the beamformer has been created and simulated in ADS®. Because of the faster run-Time, the base-band simulation could be used for testing and analyzing the performance of the adaptive algorithm.
