In this work, a high-gain broadband printed Yagi directional antenna for applications in ISM bands (686 and 915 MHz) is presented. The proposed antenna was designed to be implemented in a wireless system, devoted to water and wastewater level and underground flow measurements.
As an alternate solution to traditional low-radiation and low-gain antennas, dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) operate with less conduction losses and feature high radiation efficiency when excited properly for mm-wave frequencies and beyond.
When designing a network backhaul, the finest technology is considered for the active components, while the importance of passive components is often taken for granted. The antenna has been regularly seen as a cost-saving component where concessions can be made on quality.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track objects with tags containing electronically stored information. This application note discusses a new approach to optimizing RFID antennas for this technology with the use of the new NI AWR Software product AntSyn™ antenna synthesis and optimization technology. This method employs evolutionary algorithms (EAs) to explore the design space and automatically determine the best performance options. This application note features a new method used for optimizing radio-frequency identification (RFID) antennas and describes two examples of RFID antennas created using this technology.
