This contribution presents a corporate-fed microstrip patch antenna array EM simulation performed in Keysight ADS RFPro for millimeter-wave automotive radar applications. The 4×4 antenna array design is envisioned for operation in the long-range radar (LRR) band of 76-77 GHz. ADS RFPro enables automatic expert setting EM simulations leading to efficient use of computational resources and reduced simulation times. Finite Element Method (FEM) solver is used for simulation of the antenna array. Scalability of design and simulation using RFPro is also demonstrated.
