    Utilizing Dielectric Resonator Antennas For 5G Applications

    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. This white paper presents additional DRA characteristics, and the advantages of using them for 5G technology development.

    Synthesizing UHF RFID Antennas On Dielectric Substrates

    Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track objects with tags containing electronically stored information. This application note discusses a new approach to optimizing RFID antennas for this technology with the use of the new NI AWR Software product AntSyn™ antenna synthesis and optimization technology. This method employs evolutionary algorithms (EAs) to explore the design space and automatically determine the best performance options. This application note features a new method used for optimizing radio-frequency identification (RFID) antennas and describes two examples of RFID antennas created using this technology.

  • Carrier Aggregation In Mobile Devices
    Carrier Aggregation In Mobile Devices

    Carrier aggregation (CA) enables mobile network operators worldwide to provide faster data, and allows mobile devices to communicate on multiple LTE bands simultaneously. This, however, creates the challenge of avoiding interference between the bands while keeping up good reception and battery life. Multiplexers are an excellent solution for CA combinations that use closely spaced bands since they provide isolation between and within bands, while allowing them to connect to the antenna at the same time. This white paper discusses the challenges of carrier aggregation, and the important benefits of using multiplexer solutions to solve them.

5G And MIMO Using Wireless InSite 5G And MIMO Using Wireless InSite

With a tremendous increase in the number of connected devices and mobile data demand predicted over the next decade, the wireless communications industry is exploring new technologies to accommodate 5G wireless data systems, including MIMO (multiple input multiple output) technology.  With Massive MIMO, large antenna arrays are able to provide data streams to multiple users within the same frequency band in a small cell.  In an urban environment, signals can travel over many paths; this multipath causes the channel characteristics across an array of antennas to be extremely complex, particularly with devices in motion.  Simulating these effects is critical for predicting MIMO system performance.
