ANTENNAS CASE STUDIES, WHITE PAPERS, & APPLICATION NOTES

  • Conformal Antenna Array Design on a Missile Platform

    Applications ranging from communications to RADAR and even medical devices depend on antenna arrays.  Hand calculations successfully facilitate the construction of stand-alone arrays; however, what happens when the mounting platform becomes a part of the radiating system? 

  • A Novel RF Coupler For SMART Utility Meter Remote Antenna Applications

    In response to climate change nations across the globe have recognized the need for reducing their carbon emissions, and energy consumption. By Norman Smith, Gopinath Gampala & CJ Reddy

  • Compact Antenna For MIMO LTE Mobile Phone Applications

    Long-term evolution (LTE) is one of the 4th generation (4G) mobile communication technologies developed at different frequencies ranging from 400 MHz to 4 GHz with bandwidths up to 20 MHz.1 LTE technology facilitates multiple antennas performing both transmit and receive operations, (such as multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) to support high data rate applications. However, integrating several antennas onto a printed circuit board (PCB) becomes progressively more difficult as each new generation of handsets experience miniaturization (that is thin, slim shapes). 

  • Optimization of a Reflector Antenna System

    This white paper provides detail on how CST’s STUDIO SUITE® design/simulation software provided a workflow to optimize a reflector antenna system without having to simulate the complete model. This was made possible through the SAM (System Assembly and Modeling) feature of the design software. Download the white paper to see how it helped design, simulate, and optimize a reflector antenna system for a wide frequency band.

Yagi Antenna for the Railway Sector

Yagi Antenna for the Railway Sector

The SENCITY® SPOT-M is a WiFi Yagi Antenna specifically designed for CBTC (Communication-Based Train Control) applications. It operates in the 2400-2485 MHz frequency range and features 14 dBi gain, an extremely robust and compact design, and an enclosed bracket that allows installation on walls and masts.

IDA 2 Antenna Series

IDA 2 Antenna Series

The antennas in the IDA 2 series have been designed for detecting, analyzing, and localizing RF signals. Specifically, they’re used in eliminating faults in mobile telecommunications equipment, tracing interference in industrial plants, securing communications at large events, locating interference transmitters/jammers, localizing SOS beacons, detecting signals in security operations, monitoring signals in border protection settings, and localizing bug transmitters.

L-Band Wearable Antenna

L-Band Wearable Antenna

This antenna operates in the 1350-1390 MHz frequency range and was developed due to the increased demand for wearable antennas for L-band point-to-point/multipoint, TDMA, and Push-to-Talk applications. As L-band transceivers continue to see developments and decreases in overall size, the need for L-band wearable communications will continue to grow. For more information on Pharad’s latest entry into their wearable antenna line, download the datasheet.

Button Antennas: 2.2 GHz to 9.6 GHz

Button Antennas: 2.2 GHz to 9.6 GHz

Button antennas are ideal for applications involving tactical missiles, data links, transponders, telemetry, drones, micro aircrafts/aircrafts, helicopters, and other applications where size and weight are critical. Haigh-Farr manufactures button antennas that operate in the 2.2 GHz to 9.6 GHz frequency range and feature omnidirectional coverage in a ruggedized package.

Wearable Antennas

Wearable Antennas

Pharad LLC offers wearable antennas covering the 2.4 GHz-10 GHz frequency range. Four different models are available with varying frequency ranges.

Microwave Mini-Biconical Antenna: ABM-6000

Microwave Mini-Biconical Antenna: ABM-6000

This biconical antenna operates in the 1 GHz to 6 GHz frequency range and features a dipole-like radiation pattern, the ability to be used as a transmitting or receiving antenna, and a three year warranty. This antenna is ideal for use as a transmit source antenna for site validations above 1 GHz for radiated emissions test site like OATS (open area test sites), anechoic, and semi-anechoic chambers.
