What You Should Know About MIMO Operation and Measurement

A selection from Agilent’s “Ten Things You Should Know About MIMO” are presented in this paper, with the intention of giving the user an overview of the operation of MIMO technology and test methodology. Each item uses an example to highlight the impact on the radio system or associated test. A poster that summarizes all ten points is available from Agilent on request (order information can be found at the end of this paper).

Theoretical Analysis on Attenuation of the 5 GHz Miniaturized GaAs MMIC Bandpass Filter

A theoretical analysis method on attenuation of the compact GaAs MMIC bandpass filter using the structure of a diagonally short-ended coupled-line with capacitive loading, which is a potential solution to achieve extremely miniaturized size, is given in this paper. Based on this model, the factors related to the insertion loss performance are investigated. The experimental verification shows good agreement between theory and experiment. The proposed scheme can be used in the design and optimization of this kind of new miniaturized bandpass filter.
