ANTENNAS CASE STUDIES, WHITE PAPERS, & APPLICATION NOTES

  • A Simple Guide To Antenna Selection

    Selecting an antenna for testing can sometimes be straightforward but often requires some specific consideration. This application note offers several simple guidelines for choosing the best antenna for your application.

  • Millimeter-Wave Axial Choke Horn Antenna With Lens

    Various applications exist in the mmWave range, including wide band telecommunication and imaging applications for security screening. This white paper demonstrates how an antenna was designed for communication at 60 GHz.

  • 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.

  • Aperture Tuning: An Essential Technology In 5G Smartphones

    Antenna aperture tuning is essential to enable smartphones to operate efficiently over the ever-increasing range of RF frequency bands and support the transition to 5G. Smartphones need more antennas to support growing RF requirements such as new 5G bands, MIMO, and carrier aggregation (CA), but there is less space for these antennas due to changes in smartphone industrial design. As a result, antennas are becoming smaller, potentially reducing antenna efficiency and bandwidth. Aperture tuning compensates for this problem by allowing antennas to be tuned to operate efficiently on multiple bands and increasing Tx and Rx performance by 3 dB or more.

Cobham offers the Model 94800568 dual linear, high-power, crossed notch antenna designed for applications operating over the 2 to 18 GHz frequency range. With a ratio of 9:1 bandwidth, this dual polarized antenna features a maxumim VSWR of 2.5:1 and <2.0:1 over 90% of the frequency range.

SAGE Millimeter offers the new SAO-2734030810-KF-S1 full band omnidirectional antenna for 5G, communications, and EW applications in the 26.5 to 40 GHz frequency range. This is a vertically polarized antenna with 360 degrees azimuth coverage and a 7.5 dBi typical gain and ±1 dB nominal gain flatness.

HUBER+SUHNER offers the SENCITY® Occhio MIMO DAS (Distributed Antenna System) designed for 5G coverage in a small form factor thanks to its multiband capability between 1.7 - 6 GHz with 2x2/4x4 MIMO configurations. Features include a smart connect-system with a self-locking adaptor and a quick-locking mechanism.

Laird Connectivity offers the new Revie Flex (EFF692SA3S) flexible PCB antenna for use in LTE CAT M1 and NB-IoT devices. The antenna operates within the 698 – 875 MHz and 1710 – 2500 MHz frequency ranges and is optimized for use when mounted to plastic via the supplied adhesive backing.

AR offers the ATT700M8G wideband trapezoidal log-periodic antenna designed for pairing with AR S-Series amplifiers in applications requiring large uniform field areas. The antenna provides high power handling, nearly constant gain, and wide beam widths that are nearly equal in the E and H planes.

HUBER+SUHNER offers the SENCITY® RONDO antenna for in-building coverage and other wireless applications. Features include gain from 2 to 7 dBi, typical PIM of -155 dBc, and available SiSo, MiMo 2x2 or MiMo 3x3 configurations.

The u-blox ANN-MB series of multi-band active GNSS antennas are designed to support signals on the L1 and L2/L5 bands of the four key global navigation satellite constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou).

The ANT-SGA Standard Gain Horn Assemblies from NSI-MI are designed to deliver accurate and reliable antenna gain measurements in antenna test range applications. These horn antennas are available to cover the 0.35 to 170 GHz frequency range.
