Patch antenna error: too few conductors on port

    • Michael Gamez


      I designed a patch antenna with a ferrite material that has a magnetic saturation. I can not have the port and ferrite touching as I get an error that HFSS does not support it. I then put a small layer of aluminum in between the port and ferrite. I am now getting an error that there are too few conductors for the port. Is there a way to have the port touch the ferrite or where how to fix the conductors port error?

      Hi Michael,

      Change the material of that small layer from Aluminum to vacuum or some dielectric. Aluminum shorts the port.
