How Big Is A Wavelength?
By Knowles Precision Devices DLI

In traditional arrays an inter element spacing of less than half the wavelength (<λ><λ/2) is required to mitigate grating lobes. To understand the shift in system design this brings about, this paper looks at the physical scale of different wavelengths compared to some familiar references.

IoT Standards: The End Game
Article | By Cees Links, Qorvo

With all of the standards available for wireless technologies in the pursuit of the Internet of Things (IoT), it can be confusing to try to pick one while waiting for 5G or NB-IoT deployments. This article answers the question of which standards are best to use and looks ahead at the future of wireless technologies to help gain a better perspective as to where things are headed.

Virtual Drive Testing For ADAS Radar Sensors And Communication Antennas

This webinar will show how WinProp considers the full environment including buildings, cars, street objects in order to get accurate representations of the radio waves impinging on the installed car antennas and the multipath radar channels including reflections, diffractions and scattered contributions. For the efficient analysis the car objects can be also replaced by their corresponding radar cross sections pre-calculated in Altair Feko™
