Spotlight On Antennas
Antenna Basics

This white paper describes the basic functionality of antennas. Starting with Hertz's Antenna model followed by a short introduction to the fundamentals of wave propagation, the important general characteristics of an antenna and its associated parameters are explained.

Simplifying MIMO Antenna Installations With The FlexMIMO Antenna

This application note takes a closer look at MIMO antenna installations and how they can be simplified with FlexMIMO antennas from Laird Connectivity.

5G Manufacturer Reduces Test Time By 20X

Manufacturing multi-antenna, high frequency 5G transceivers requires rapidly testing large transceiver arrays at millimeter-wave frequencies over the air. This case study details how a company adopted a distributed test architecture to significantly increase manufacturing speed and improve asset utilization.

Simulating Compact Multi-Band Antennas For Wireless Applications

This application note demonstrates the different options available when using the WIPL-D Pro 3D EM Solver for the simulation of complex printed wideband antennas. It also illustrates the simplicity of using WIPL-D Pro CAD to create models for this type of antenna. 

How To Design An LTCC T/R X-Band Module With A Phased-Array Antenna

This app note describes how to design a transmit/receive module with a 2x2 phased-array antenna operating in the 8 to 12 GHz range. This paper also covers capabilities within the NI AWR Design Environment platform, including multi-technology and circuit/system co-simulation.

Specialized High-Performance Antenna Design

IDS is able to support the antenna development process from start to finish, from the initial analysis of the requirements and the choice of the type of solution to the optimal installation of a finished system in an operational environment.
