horn Analysis Of A Terahertz Dual-Band, Dielectric-Loaded Horn Antenna

In this example, a design is evaluated with XFdtd EM Simulation Software, using a conical horn to radiate a lower frequency band at 94 GHz with a tapered dielectric strip to carry the higher band of 340 GHz. The dual-band horn design shows good performance at both frequencies with high gain, symmetrical beams and low sidelobes.

FEATURED SOLUTIONS

adpa7008chip Power Amplifier (20 GHz to 54 GHz): ADPA7008

The ADPA7008CHIP is a gallium arsenide (GaAs), pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), 31 dBm saturated output power (1 W) distributed power amplifier that operates from 20 GHz to 54 GHz.

  • Passive Mixer (7 to 34/40 GHz): HMC774A

    The HMC774ALC3B is a general-purpose, double balanced mixer in a leadless, RoHS compliant, surface-mount package that can be used as an upconverter or downconverter between 7 GHz and 34 GHz. This mixer requires no external components or matching circuitry. The HMC774ALC3B provides excellent LO to RF and LO to IF isolation due to optimized balun structures.

  • IQ Mixer Family (2.5 to 42 GHz): HMC8193 | HMC8192 | HMC8191

    The HMC819x series’ RF and LO bandwidth of 2.5 to 42 GHz along with wide IF bandwidth enable military or test and measurement applications to simplify design implementation while still maintaining superb RF performance. 

  • Gain And Phase Detector: AD8302

    The AD8302 is a fully integrated system for measuring gain/loss and phase in numerous receive, transmit, and instrumentation applications. It requires few external components and a single supply of 2.7 V–5.5 V.

  • Silicon Switches (100 MHz to 44 GHz ): ADRF5042 | ADRF5043

    The ADRF5042 and ADRF5043 from Analog Devices are nonreflective SP4T switches, manufactured in the silicon on insulator (SOI) process. The ADRF5042 is pin compatible with the ADRF5043 low frequency cutoff version, which operates from 9 kHz to 44 GHz.

ABOUT RF GLOBALNET

RF Globalnet is the Internet's leading source of cutting-edge technical information for the RF/microwave design community. If you are an RF/microwave design engineer or engineering manager involved in the design and development of wireless subsystems and components, or military and other radio-based communication systems at all levels, you now have access to a comprehensive web community delivering the latest updates on RF technology to give you the competitive advantage in your industry.

To provide this technical information, the site offers detailed coverage of the design and development of RF/microwave subsystems and components such as amplifiers, oscillators, modulators, attenuators, mixers, resonators, frequency synthesizers, filters, coaxial cables, connectors, switches, antennas, intergrated circuits (ICs), modules, transmitters, receivers, and transceivers. The site also includes information on discrete components such as diodes, inductors, capacitors, transistors, and resistors. We also examine the technology that creates and verifies the design, namely test and measurement equipment, computer-aided-design (CAD) tools and electronic design automation (EDA) software, among others.

RF Globalnet's database is structured to serve the needs of RF/microwave design engineers, engineering managers, system integrators, product specifiers, business executives, consultants, and others involved in the design and development of commercial wireless systems, military devices, and other commercial communication systems. Reflecting the dynamic and interactive character of the Internet, RF Globalnet is the most accurate and convenient technical source of design, product, and news information available for the rapidly changing and growing RF/microwave design industry.
