Characteristic mode analysis (CMA) to provide new insights that would be difficult to obtain otherwise. CMA provides insights into physics of the problem, as it produces the radiating current modes that fit naturally on a given geometry. This application note discusses how CMA insights may be used to improve performance of an ultra-wideband antenna.
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.
Many designers will find Optenni Lab useful in creating antenna designs that will conform to any impedance requirement. This application note talks about the Optenni Lab, and examples of its use and value in the design of a DVB antenna, and a compact GPS and Wi-Fi Antenna.
A printed reflectarray is a high-gain, low profile, low-cost antenna that combines the advantages of parabolic reflector antennas with microstrip arrays. This white paper demonstrates how to easily create a printed reflectarray and its simpler feeds through the use of FEKO simulation software.
