As wireless communications applications expand, demand increases for compact antennas capable of supporting reliable communications. This novel use of composite right/left-handed (CRLH) transmission lines fits the bill.
At this year’s European Microwave Week (EuMW), companies will showcase developments ranging from high performing discrete components to software that promises to tackle tough and time-consuming design challenges.
Broadband antennas are needed for emerging applications using the ultrawideband (UWB) frequency range. To serve such applications, a fractal antenna using an Appollian-shaped gasket with coplanar-waveguide (CPW) feed was developed.
Amplifier designers have long dreaded the appearance of oscillations in a carefully considered circuit. When that circuit is in monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) form, a "fix" requires another foundry run. Fortunately, help...
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have provided a nice boon to the microwave and RF market. By using technologies ranging from Global Positioning System (GPS) location to wireless communications, they have offered new business opportunities.
