  • The Effect Of Low-Quality Antennas On Network Backhaul
    The Effect Of Low-Quality Antennas On Network Backhaul

    This paper describes the effects of various quality variables on microwave antenna performance, and provides insight into the long-term consequences of using a low-cost/ poor-quality antenna. It demonstrates the effect of operators’ preference for low-cost antennas without considering the total cost of ownership, as well as possible ill effects on their quality of service.

  • High-Gain Broadband Printed Yagi Antenna For Applications In ISM Bands
    High-Gain Broadband Printed Yagi Antenna For Applications In ISM Bands

    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. 

  • Comparing Spatially Separated SISO & Co-Located MIMO Antennas Within MIMO Systems

    This application note discusses how co-located MIMO performs as well as or better than spatially separated SISO antennas while providing a cheaper alternative.

  • Carrier Aggregation In Mobile Devices
    Carrier Aggregation In Mobile Devices

    Carrier aggregation (CA) enables mobile network operators worldwide to provide faster data, and allows mobile devices to communicate on multiple LTE bands simultaneously. This, however, creates the challenge of avoiding interference between the bands while keeping up good reception and battery life. Multiplexers are an excellent solution for CA combinations that use closely spaced bands since they provide isolation between and within bands, while allowing them to connect to the antenna at the same time. This white paper discusses the challenges of carrier aggregation, and the important benefits of using multiplexer solutions to solve them.
