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.
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.
