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.
Air defense missiles typically require a proximity fuse, priming the missile warhead to detonate when the missile is close enough to the target. One of the ways that such a proximity fuse can be implemented is with a small radar that is used in short-range low-power mode.
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.
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) are used to provide strong and reliable wireless connectivity in location where connectivity is a problem with standard wireless routers or cellular connectivity. This app note discusses the use of DAS for IoT, cellular and other wireless applications.
Groundbreaking innovations on antenna technology, based on a collaboration between Lockheed Martin Space and Penn State, are now under consideration for use in the next generation of GPS satellite payloads.
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.
