Design of a 900/1800 MHz Dual-band LTCC Chip Antenna for Mobile Communications Applications

This article presents the design simulation, implementation and measurement of a miniaturized 900/1800 MHz dual-band low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) chip antenna for mobile communication applications. The use of a helix-monopole type dual-band ...
Recently, multi-layer LTCC technology has been used extensively for the miniaturization of RF passive components and antennas. In addition to the high integration by embedding components and interconnects, high Q passive elements have been demonstrated with LTCC technology. 1 It is suitable to integrate antennas and other passive components,...

A K- and Ka-band Vehicular Phased-array Antenna

Commercial applications of phased-array antennas have been extensively studied over the last decade, principally in the case of vehicular antennas. Beside the problems related with the design of such an array, there are some general considerations that must be taken into account. If the vehicular antenna has a high...

Got You Covered

In 1976, Soviet pilot Viktor Belenko escaped with his MiG-25P to Japan, thus revealing RP-SA Smerch-A (NATO: Fox Fire) radar technology to the West. While the USSR was undeniably proud of the MiG-25P's peerless speed and altitude capabilities, it was in reality a rather simple aircraft mechanically. The compromise...
