EM Simulation Of Dual-Band and Wideband Dual-Polarized Cylindrical Dielectric Resonator Antennas For WLAN

Dielectric resonator antennas have numerous characteristics that make them useful, including low loss, high efficiency, and compact size. This example demonstrates how XFdtd analyzes two similar cylindrical dielectric resonator antennas (DRA) which have been developed for dual-polarization performance for different bands. The first antenna is dual-band for covering DCS (1.71-1.88 GHz) and WLAN (2.4-2.48 GHz) bands. The second design is wideband covering the WLAN and parts of the WiMAX band (up to 2.69 GHz).

Application Note: Application Guide To RF Coaxial Connectors And Cables

RF coaxial connectors provide vital RF links in communications, broadcast, EMC testing, commercial and military, as well as test and measurement fields. This article provides guidance and insight in choosing connectors best suited to accommodate your specific application.

60 GHz Wireless Data Interconnect For Slip Ring Applications

Industry 4.0 is driving change in many technologies and one such change is industrial communication. New application scenarios shaped by the fourth industrial revolution demand faster, more reliable, and more accurate ultralow latency data transmission between rotating parts of automation equipment operating in real time.

Introducing The Highest Voltage, Smallest Footprint SLC On The Market – The V80 Bypass Capacitor

As RF and microwave systems require higher performance in a small footprint, designers and engineers need to get more out of every component, including capacitors. To meet these demands, Knowles Precision Devices has expanded its line of single-layer vertical electrode (V Series) capacitors to include the 100nF V80 Bypass Capacitor. 

Power Up Your Power Management Knowledge

While power management plays a critical role in almost all electronic devices, it’s often not a huge focus. The power management system improves product reliability, increases performance, and often handles a wide range of other functions. Power management integrated circuits (PMICs) are especially important in battery-powered electronic devices, including smartphones and wearables, because of their small size, high efficiency, and design flexibility.
