Microstrip Patch Antenna Ansoft Designer

Hello EveryOne !!! I'm a student and i'm writing a thesis about the fault diagnosis in Microstrip Patch Array antennas using a SingleValueOptimization Algorithm. First, i have to implement a patch array in ansoft designer V2 using the circuit Simulator (Microstrip Component) without planar EM. How i can do it ? Thank you a lot !!!!

High frequency FET for simple TV transmitter circuit

I think the diagram you show is quite primitive. The antenna will influence the transmitted frequency. It would be better to use a buffer transistor at the output of the oscillator (repeater on emitter maybe). I don't think you need to change from bipolar to FET. The TV spectrum is very large, from 48 MHz to over 800 MHz. What channel do you want t

Open circuit/ Short circuit behavior of an antenna

What does physically happen when a receiver antenna in Open circuit/ and short circuit mode is exposed to RF signal? Is the power reflected back?

Practical antenna electrometer reviews

Hi, I would like your reviews on this circuit The author states advantages over mosfets and he uses tubes.

Antenna and line transmition impedance

When we see the antenna parameter, there is the impedance which it's always real (75 , 50, ... Ohms) But the impedance antenna is \left\vert{} Z \right\vert{} = \sqrt{{R}^{2} + {( \omega L - \frac{1}{\omega C})}^{2}} or it's just the real part of Z? I think it's the first one, Because the antenna always has and inductance and

What is meant by cavity backed antennas,what is the need for it .

i am designing a cavity backed bowtie antenna.what is the need for cavity in antenna designing.if i am using a cavity box ,should i have to use a groundplane .how to calculate the dimensions of the cavity box.what material should be assigned to the cavity box.

Open-circuit microstrip termination/match to air line

I need to check EM properties of my antenna feed network, so to save time, I want to replace patches with equivalent open-circuit "loads", each with input impedance of 50Ω. How would I go about it? I can use stub matching to design a termination given the load, but how do I do that if my load impedance is infinity? I know it can be done sin

[moved] Reconfigurable antenna isolating the bias from the RF signal?

I am working on a pattern reconfigurable antenna and for this i need to bias the PIN diode from a battery through bias line. For this I need a RF choke inductance to isolate the ac from the bias line. I have seen different value of inductor is being used by different author. Is there any specific formula to select the RF choke to select for frequne

Phantom power for TV antenna amplifier

Hi, I need to design a circuit that will provide power to a TV antenna amplifier. My constraints are : * Characteristic impedance : 75 Ohm, * Power supply for antenna amplifier : 24V @ 100mA and * Available power supply : 9V @ 1.6A I think I will base the solution on a step-up converter. But I have a concern about the harmonics of (...)

Sim800 with external antenna resetting

Hello everyone how are you. I am working on a circuit that has a SIM800 module with an external L Shape antena. The module is powered by a LM2596 DC DC converter. The problem that I have is during the module registering phase to the network. It suddenly resets and start o ver again. But if I hold the antenna with my hand or if I place a finger ove

Molten plastic for electronics enclosure

Hi, I have a tiny electronic circuit (RF active antenna with fitted SMA connectors) and I want to enclose it in molten plastic or other resign, so that I can create a short of "rubber duck" antenna. The major concern is the SMA connector, which is fitted in molten plastic in commercial rubber duck antennas. This allows the (...)

LLC resonant Half Bridge converter for low power, low voltage SMPS?

Hello, We are designing a 20W SMPS which simply supplies 15V at 1A to an RF Phased array antenna circuit. (its for comms). Vin = 48V. We were wondering if it is overly extravagant to do this as an Half-Bridge LLC converter? Its just that the SMPS will be very close to the Comms signal processors and other sensitive circuitry, so we (...)

Inverted F antenna - short circuit line

The answer to your question: Why do we use a short circuit line to the ground plane? is: For proper impedance matching. IFA is a variant of ILA (Inverted L antenna) which has an L shape and don't use this short transmission line for "proper" impedance matching as IFA. ILA gets the right port impedance changing the length and the shape above the g

Equivalent circuit from Microstrip patch Antenna

I'm not acquainted with CST, but in HFSS you cannot do that (as far as I know). You need to fit the equivalent circuits from the Microstrip antennas chapter in Balanis book (probably two RLC tanks regarding the two radiating edges) and then tune it using for example ADS, until it fits the resonances obtained in CST or HFSS.

[Moved]: Will this 433mhz antenna amplifier work?

Hello, I found very cheap 433MHz transmitter/receiver kits on ebay (see image attached). They have poor range. I am wandering if one-transistor amplifier attached before transmitter antenna will extend the range. I have designed one transistor amplifier myself (see image attached) and doubt it will work properly. In theory (according LTSPICE

microstrip antenna design - help

So it is not just an antenna, it is energy saving LED power supply circuit. L1 is an antenna to pick up energy from 5.8 GHz radio sources. Efficiency of this antenna will be maximized when it is resonant at operating frequency. Also it's aperture should be maximized. How do you know it is specifically designed for 5.8GHz? (...)

ELF antenna design on printed circuit board

As analog engineer, I have been asked to review a design before production. This design include an antenna on the PCB (see attached picture, about 5cm by 5cm), but the antenna design seems very strange to me. This emitter antenna must work in the band of few Hz to few 10 Hz (ELF band). A simple calculus tells me that the wavelength is (...)

RF antenna lightning protection

Im designing a lightning protection circuit for GPS module that works off 3,3V and antenna line is used to feed antenna with 9V DC through bias tee. I have a gass tube discharge(GDT) element in antenna cable that should take the voltage down to about 90V, but I need help designing the low voltage protection stage that I (...)

RF Shield for RFID circuit in portable equipment

for that shield to work, there has to be a "ground plane" somewhere inside of the PC board. you connect that metal shield to the ground plane in numerous places and try to make a faraday cage. unfortunately, since you need an antenna external to the shield....you are going to be deliberately screwing up the faraday cage, and may need to add a low

Can you explain the end part of this FM circuit?

The circuit is not an amplifier, and is just a common base Colpitts oscillator with an antenna attached at the output. C5 is the feedback capacitor, and C3 is the base decoupling capacitor. C3 has low reactance at oscillation frequency (RF), and high reactance at modulation frequency (AF). This is a poor design, and if you touch the antenna, (...)

It keeps loading!! Please help. Kawther

High VSWR at Notch Frequency

Hello All, I drew an antenna as in one of the papers. I analysed it, and created the VSWR graph. It was as below 122628122629 A very high VSWR at the notch frequency. The VSWR in the paper was about 26. Why did i have a very high VSWR at the notch frequency? Regards, Kawther Hamad,

2.4GHz Antenna for flexible PCB

I think you can use PCB trace antennas. Inverted F-antenna, Meandered inverted f antenna etc.

Equivalent circuit of a printed loop antenna

I was thinking of the ideal and lossy transmission line models in circuit simulation programs, e.g. SPICE. It's important to understand if transmission line common mode waves are involved, if so a combination of multiple transmission line models may be used to model common mode and differential waves. What's the frequency range of your antenn

Circuit to detect the antenna has been attached.

If your antenna had a built in resistor to ground, say 10k, it would be simple to have a 1~10M pullup and Cap for low current to activate a P-ch MOSFET high side switch to de-activate the circuit, then activate when antenna 10K to ground without degrading the RF. PC's use the same method to detect a speaker connected (<100 Ohm) and video (...)

Inverted antenna and chip antenna for CC2640

Go only with the printed antenna. The worse printed inverted-F would work better than any chip antenna. The only thing that an inverted-F antenna needs to work well, is a good ground plane (which can be the metal shield of your circuit) and spend little time on tuning.

What is this circuit?

it is a mixer. It is probably a homodyne radar receiver of some sort. It sends out RF from a transmit antenna. Simultaneously, it sends a copy to one port of this "mixer" called the "local oscillator port". When the return bounces back from the ground, it is received by an antenna and input to the "RF Port" of the mixer. The resultant is a low

Increase LF antenna range

More information needed. I guess your "antenna" is a RFID reader coil. To extent the range, the coil current must be increased. Reducing the coil resistance should basically work in this direction, but the effect depends on the transmitter circuit.

900 MHz collpits oscillator

2SC4367 has a typical transit frequency of 1 GHz (min. 600 MHz), so you're lucky if the circuit is oscillating at 900 MHz at all. You all want to use transistor with GHz bandwidth instead. Apart from this point, what's the value of C2? Is your circuit layout suited for 900 MHz at all? If you connected an antenna, it's frequency (...)

Design of High frequency 1MHZ, 10-20 watt, PWM based inverter

Most important aspect is the antenna coupling factor ( transformer coupling) THe gap between sender and receiver must be smaller than the loop antenna for reasonable coupling. THerefore tune each coil ( round or square) to resonate more maximum Q with a large diameter > gap. ( just like RFID's in store exits) This can be extended with high mu

Pulse LF signal antenna switching circuit for clip ring down

So you just need to do Q spoiling? How fast does the coil energy need to ring down? I'm guessing that you're seeing inconsistent behavior because the switching isn't synchronous with the phase of the antenna current. Ideally you would switch on exactly when the coil current is at zero, but that means the capacitor voltage will be at its maximum, s

Can you help me and take a look at this amplifiers? They are supposed to be antenna preamplifiers. On the left side is my calculated FET amplifier. On the right side the drain resistor is replaced with LC circuit that resonates on 14MHz. Yes I know, the input is 14.25MHz. I calculated it by mistake for 14MHz, but it's not important. The input signa

Barbed wires fence under power transmission line...

What is a better approach to harvest some radiated field from barbed wire parallel to an overhead high power transmission line ? : -A bridge rectifier at one end of a barbed wire against a grounded rod, or -A 60Hz LC tuned circuit from the barbed wire serving as antenna against a grounded rod. (plus rectification) -Or other ? And why? Not i

FM transmitter, antenna and radiated power

Your transmitter is messy, I am surprised it works. Usually a 100MHz transmitter circuit is neat and tidy. The distance is increased when the antennas focus the radio beam. A Yagi antenna has good focussing.

Confirm circuit design [Help]

That all looks good to me. You have the fixed regulators wired correctly. Watch out for the antenna connection on the module, at 5.7GHz the track width and spacing are critical if you want most output to reach the antenna. Brian.
