Reconfigurable antennas are quite useful because of their versatility in many different applications. An innovative approach for configuring these antennas using an optimizer is investigated. This is accomplished by implementing particle swarm optimization as the antenna controller. Simulation results show rapid convergence onto optimal pixel configurations for a desired resonant frequency. In summary, the Software Optimized Antenna (SOA), a novel class of antenna, is being proposed and investigated.
