Designing smaller and more effective antennas

Designing smaller and more effective antennas
Good things come in small packages. This is especially true in the world of portable wireless communications systems. Cell phones, wearables, and implantable electronics have shrunk over time, which has made them more useful in many cases. But a critical component of these devices - the antenna - hasn't followed suit. Researchers haven't been able to get them much smaller, until now.

Simple antenna matching with the TTR500

If you’re integrating an off-the-shelf antenna with a wireless module, you’ll need to ensure that the impedance of the antenna matches the impedance of the wireless module.

Customising antennas with science and manufacturing techniques

Customising antennas with science and manufacturing techniques
In an increasingly connected world, performance demands on antennas are greater than ever. With wireless devices constantly shrinking, the antennas’ allowable size and weight is rapidly reducing, while demands for lower power consumption increase so that battery powered devices can last longer between charges. These increased performance demands also have to be balanced with cost, and the limits imposed by the laws of physics, which make antenna design a trade-off between performance attributes.

Better satellite communication is on its way

Better satellite communication is on its way
First Sensor Lewicki, part of the sensor specialist First Sensor, will be involved in the construction of one of the antennas for the German communication satellite Heinrich Hertz. A contract was signed on June 28th, 2017 by the DLR (German Aerospace Center), the contracting authority, and OHB System AG, thegeneral contractor, for the construction, testing and launch of the satellite. The multi-feed array antenna is related to the mission objective of a geostationary relay for low Earth orbit satellites (GeReLEO).

2.4GHz antenna operates without de-tuning on metal surfaces

2.4GHz antenna operates without de-tuning on metal surfaces
Antenova is shipping a 2.4GHz antenna, Zenon, the first in the company’s new REFLECTOR series. This family of antennas has been engineered to operate without de-tuning on metal surfaces – or where the product housing is mainly metal – a situation where it is normally extremely difficult for an antenna to operate.

Plastic RFID system integrates screen-printed circuitry

Plastic RFID system integrates screen-printed circuitry
A plastic 12-bit RFID tag and read-out system with screen-printed circuitry has been demonstrated by Quad Industries, Agfa, imec and TNO. The system integrates, for the first time, a screen-printed antenna and printed touch-based user interface, allowing implementation of the reader on curved surfaces. The demonstrator has been designed for badge security applications, but holds promises for many other applications, including smart packages, wearables and interactive games.

Low-profile antenna targets applications using LPWAN protocols

Low-profile antenna targets applications using LPWAN protocols
Manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, Antenova, has announced a new antenna, Grandis, part number SR42I010. It is an SMD antenna that is physically smaller yet provides enhanced performance in the 863-870MHz and 902-928MHz bands. It directly targets the growing number of M2M and IoT applications using the LPWAN protocols. With Grandis, Antenova has reduced the footprint of the LPWAN antenna to 12.0x11.0x1.6mm, while also enhancing the antenna’s performance.
