HLSSA software for design slotted waveguides

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

HLSSA software for design slotted waveguides site is down.

I mention this software many times, but it seems that site from which I downloaded it is down, so I’ll put back online. IF anyone is unhappy whit this – contact me and I’ll stop spreading it!

HLSSA software for design slotted waveguides is here : hlssa61e_programonly.zip

This is english version and last according to version that I can find- ver6.1

Here You can find German ver 5.4 www.dl6nci.de

Authors are DK3BA and DH6SBN.

HLSSA software for design slotted waveguides

Here is my 5ghz slotted waveguide antenna almost build and calculated with HLSSA.

All we know trevor marshal design – here is another approach in designing slotted waveguide. 😉

Firs thing is of course 10ghz book http://www.w1ghz.org in chapter seven http://www.w1ghz.org/antbook/ch7_part1.pdf

 

Next thing is hlssa program :

Hlssa programs are used to design position of the slots over the waveguide surface.

There are several versions og this one in the net – hlssa54 is first one in German.

there is hlssa61e – version in English and as I support ver 61 isthe new one 🙂

Some links for hlssa program :

Here some links that I found useful :

First :

Cut-off calculator for square waveguides : http://www.eecircle.com/applets/014/wgfc.html

 

Some pictures of simulations /these ones are NOT mine / : http://www.jawug.za.net/index.php/8+slot+waveguide+plots?thankyou=1

Next there is applet in java which give us way to see what tm modes we have inside the waveguide based on freq and dimensions.

And finally a place where to choose standard waveguide tubbing – http://www.pennengineering.com/waveguide.htm

 


So we have all thing needed to design our new waveguide for the frequency that we need.

 

This is just collection of links that You may find useful. This is not tutorial. But this is basic for beginning building slotted waveguide.If You are interesting there is a lot of reading in the net – Good luck!
