ANTENNAS CASE STUDIES, WHITE PAPERS, & APPLICATION NOTES

  • Simplifying MIMO Antenna Installations With The FlexMIMO Antenna

    A MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) antenna is basically two (or more) antennas located in a single physical structure. With the benefit of multiple antennas rather than just one, data throughput, range, and general performance are greatly enhanced. This application note takes a closer look at MIMO antenna installations and how they can be simplified with FlexMIMO antennas from Laird Connectivity.

  • Optimizing An LTE Antenna’s Matching Network

    This application note describes the process of a simple antenna for LTE band operation added to the PC board of a smartphone in XFdtd being tuned for operation in multiple frequency bands. The component values in the matching network are chosen so that system efficiency is maximized.

  • How To Design An LTCC T/R X-Band Module With A Phased-Array Antenna

    This app note describes how to design a transmit/receive module with a 2x2 phased-array antenna operating in the 8 to 12 GHz range. This paper also covers capabilities within the NI AWR Design Environment platform, including multi-technology and circuit/system co-simulation.

  • 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.

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.

HUBER+SUHNER recently launched their omnidirectional and directional outdoor antennas for use in 4G and 5G deployments. The SENCITY Urban 100 and 200 MIMO antennas are as compact as possible for installation in discreet locations with their various types of mounting brackets.

SAGE Millimeter offers the Model SAY-3433632750-28-U5-MP monopulse Cassegrain antenna designed to operate in the 34 to 36 GHz frequency range with a half-power beam width of 5.0 degrees. It is ideally suited for use in 5G systems, as well as many types of communication and radar systems.

MP Antenna offers the 08-ANT-0899 multi-polarized NMO-mount antenna operating from 2 to 3 GHz for mobile data communications applications, such as for WiFi, WIMAX, and all 802.11 wireless systems in vehicles. This low profile antenna provides unequalled wireless communication in “real world”, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments.

A.H. Systems offers the series of Octave Horn Antennas comprising octave bandwidth pyramidal horn antennas with excellent half power performance. With low VSWR, high input handling capability and rugged design make this horn antenna excellent for both immunity and emissions testing.

HUBER+SUHNER’s direct GPS-Over-Fiber (GPSoF) solution is designed to enable a fiber optic connection directly into an antenna for the world’s first “truly copperless” link. This solution uses HUBER+SUHNER’s Q-ODC fiber optic interface, making it perfect for applications that have limited power resources and for use in outdoors or harsh environments.

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.
