Learn Which Waveguide Horns Are Right For Your Millimeter Waves

Waveguide horn antennas represent technology that is old but still invaluable, especially for sending and receiving signals well into the millimeter-wave frequency range.

Mobile 5G Device Antenna Tuning Demystified

While each addition of an aperture tuner helps optimize the overall antenna performance for each band, it sometimes comes at the cost of antenna efficiency. Without the proper balance of antenna efficiency and performance of each band on an antenna, the overall device performance and range will suffer.
