SAR of a Human Head Next to a Wi-Fi Antenna

Application ID: 71721

Users of consumer electronics with radiating devices are exposed to radio frequency (RF) emission. The amount of exposure is defined as the specific absorption rate (SAR). That is, the SAR value represents the radio frequency (RF) energy rate absorbed by a body. This model computes local SAR values over a simplified human head and brain mock-up when a microstrip patch antenna operating at the Wi-Fi frequency range is placed close to the human head.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
