As 5G technologies are developed to increase wireless communication data rates by a factor of 100, the design specifications of radio frequency (RF) electronics have become much more rigorous, especially for millimeter-wave (mm-wave) applications. As an alternate solution to traditional low radiation and low gain antennas, Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRAs) operate with less conduction losses and feature high radiation efficiency when excited properly for mm-wave frequencies and beyond. Download this white paper for additional DRA characteristics, and the advantages of using them for 5G technology development.
