Testing of Smart Antenna Systems

Key tests that can be performed on switched beam systems, which are considered the simplest, but most popular, smart antenna technologies
David Robbins and Moeness G. Amin
No Comments
Testing of Smart Antenna Systems Smart antenna systems must be tested to verify the various claims made by the system designer and manufacturer. The tests should be performed primarily to evaluate the most and least successful functions of the system under consideration. Extensive testing should also establish the best...

Experimental Adaptive Nulling with a Genetic Algorithm

Application of a genetic algorithm with an experimental antenna for placing a null in the direction of an interference source
Ranfy Haupt and Hugh Southall
No Comments
Experimental Adaptive Nulling with a Genetic Algorithm An adaptive antenna system rejects interference by placing a null in its antenna pattern in the direction of the interfering source. A single-element antenna needs at least one other element or some scattering object to form a null. Thus, adaptive antennas are...

A Microstrip Patch Antenna Using Novel Photonic Band-gap Structures

A novel two-dimensional photonic band-gap lattice and its application in microstrip patch antenna design
Yongxi Qian, Roberto Coccioli, Dan Sievenpiper, Vesna Radisic, Eli Yablonovitch and Tatsu Itoh
No Comments
A Microstrip Patch Antenna Using Novel Photonic Band-gap Structures The microstrip patch is one of the most preferred antenna structures for low cost and compact design of wireless communication systems and RF sensors. However, as applications move to higher frequencies, conventional patch antenna designs encounter severe limitations such as...
