Millimeter wave (mmWave) antennas operate in the band of frequencies between 10mm and 1mm. Thus, the frequency range for mmWave applications is greater than 30 GHz, but less than 300 GHz. Various applications exist in this range, including wide band telecommunication and imaging applications for security screening. This white paper demonstrates how an antenna was designed for communication at 60 GHz.
Ensuring maximum power transfer between an antenna and transmitter/receiver circuitry requires impedance matching of HF components in the antenna design. This app note describes the design and matching of a 60 GHz printed antenna.
A problematic base station can be replaced, but a cable and antenna system is not so easy to replace. This article covers fundamentals of cable and antenna analysis measurements: return loss, cable loss, and distance-to-fault (DTF).
An antenna factor (AF) is the comparison between the field level presented to the antenna and the actual voltage produced by the antenna at its connector. This white paper explains the process of creating AF data and how to use it.
Antennas made of carbon nanotube films are just as efficient as copper for wireless applications, according to researchers at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering. They're also tougher, more flexible and can essentially be painted onto devices.
Pharad has introduced a new Unmanned Air Systems (UAS)/Drone antenna based on its proprietary Peel & Stick Appliqué antenna technology.
Groundbreaking innovations on antenna technology, based on a collaboration between Lockheed Martin Space and Penn State, are now under consideration for use in the next generation of GPS satellite payloads.
