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.
Antennas Of Flexible Nanotube Films An Alternative For Electronics
Antennas made of carbon nanotube films are just as efficient as copper for wireless applications, according to researchers at Rice University's Brown School of Engineering. They're also tougher, more flexible and can essentially be painted onto devices.
