## [Moved]: Pattern and Frequency Reconfigurable Annular Slot Antenna Using PIN diode

Hi normally we use PIN diodes for pattern reconfigurable antenna. My question is that as the current in antenna is ac how does the PIN diode works. Because diodes only let current flow only in one direction? When a pin diode is forward biased does it allow the ac current to flow in both direction?

## How to switch more than a diode while simulating the antenna in CST

## Weird component needing identification

crystal-2.jpg and crystal-3.jpg is a 10uF 16V electrolytic capacitor. 'antenna' is a transformer, you umight find it has diodes underneath it in which case it could be a balanced mixer. Most likely it is just two windings, one on each side of the substrate. No idea what R8W is I'm afraid. Brian.

## Calculating Load Impedance

Each capacitor appears Zc=1/(2pif*C) + ESR. the diodes are dynamic resistance and depend on size. You wont be able to match the impedance because the coupling current and spacing loss makes the input impedance high and the closer you get, it can drop below 50 Ohms. You are much better off using a step-down inductive coil antenna to boost the

## Prediction/Calculation of Antenna effects by foundry

I've never seen an attempt to predict in-process charging, gate oxide tunneling nor the photoconduction of antenna diodes. In fact I have often seen antenna rules show up after several revisions of PDK, without. If you want to go back to wet etches and >>1um feature sizes and lousy aspect ratios and so on, have yourself a time. You'll (...)

## Could LED array realize light's beam forming like antenna 's beam-forming?

Interesting question. Maybe, the light has to be a pure single wavelength so it might be possible using LASER diodes. The difference with antennas is you provide the signal to drive them, an LED produces it's own signal. Brian.

## Looking for low-frequency PIN diode

I?m developing a simple, five-frequency superhetrodyne receiver to operate between 2.5 MHz to 20 MHz in which the local oscillator crystals and whip antenna tuning circuits are selected (switched) using diodes. Here?s the problem: The whip tuning circuit is comprised of a single variable capacitor with five fixed-value inductors, each in seri

## The Risk of Having No ESD Protection. To be ESDed or NOT, this is a question.

If this is a real product, your real customer will have some demands on pins that are exposed to the outside world. antenna connected circuits are one such, if the antenna is not encased. You might look at making the ESD clamps' breakover voltage higher, at mimizing their shunt C (many clamps have parasitic diodes whose C-V characteristic (...)

## Monopulse multiple-patch array antenna question: 16 patches = 16 diodes = 16 channels

On the internet most approaches uses 3 antennas. 1 TX and 2 RX for monopulse azimuth detection. I am thinking about signal inside the patch. I want try to put receiver diode directly to the patch, so it becomes self-mixing radiating patch. For 4x4 array, whould other 4x4=16-1=15 patches disturb phase of current patch RX signal? As they all connecte

## Antenna Ratio in Antenna Rule file

Hello Everyone, I am doing a project on physical design and came across some antenna violations in my design.... When i checked for the violations all the violations were on the top level metal layer... I know it can be fixed using antenna diodes, but what i didnot understand when i saw the antenna rule file is that (...)

## Diodes used for Antenna Error correction

Hi, I am in the confusion of using diodes for antenna error correction. For a PMOS gate, 1.When I put diode in nwell, the P-type is connected to the net and n-type to VDD(the well supply), the charges (accumulated during fab) at the gate will forward bias the diode there by damaging the gate oxide connected to net. 2.For the same PMOS, I put

## how to design pattern reconfigurable microstrip antenna in CST

can u give me some links or material for designing switches. or designing pattern reconfigurable antenna

## Detect RF input power of a diode

diodes are very non-linear. You are probably generating some DC voltage, but it is microvolts and you do not see it. You need to use an "RF" diode, probably a "zero bias" one to use with an antenna. You need a capacitor at the output that can pass DC volts, but block RF energy from travelling down the wire to the oscilloscope, as a minimum. The

## Doubt regarding Antenna violations

ya, ok..i know zener in redusing antenna violations, are we using zener diodes? When there are static charges accumulated on the net this zener diode will bypass these static charges to the gnd. These static charges come into picture while doing the etching process using CMP.

## How to use diode to solve antenna violation?

I have two antenna violation in my layout. Long metal is connected to pmos gate. I plan to use reverse biased diode to solve the problem. how should I connect the other terminal of the diode? If I use N+/pwell diode, should the other end connect to ground ?

## Antenna diodes breakdown

a) if you look at any diode characteristic you will see that even reverse biased diode is still letting some current through. Not much but enough - you can actually use it for your design if you are careful. Very often it is used for biasing of substrate in case of "overvoltage" circuits. That said diode does not have to break down to provide curr

## Some doubts related to wireless signal transmission.

It is possible. you will have peak to peak voltage of perhaps 3v, which is around 1v rms, which is around 10-20 milliwatts. If you hook that to a quarterwave antenna (15 meters long wired), you will have a detectable signal -20 dBm or so, assuming 0 dBi antenna gains) at the distance: Intelligen

## CMOS Antenna Ratio Rules

To Radike, antenna check is layer by layer. Which layer did you get this error? - if poly, then perhaps it might be the case, you are using too much poly for interconnect between the MOS gates. Use Jumper rule first to avoid as much as you can. I won't recommend using reverse-bias diodes as a first method, diode insertion is bad w.r.t. low-power,

## Transmitter and Receiver sharing antenna, 433MHz

You can use simple circuit. Use SPDT to switch between Tx and RX. i.e common poet connecting to 433Mhz antenna, one end to Tx and the other to RX.

## How to draw antenna diode to protect mosfet from antenna effect?

Don't think so. Isn't this a cap, rather than a diode? ;-) If I am not wrong, the Source and the Drain act as the diffusion diodes to sink in the extra charges due to the antenna effect. Connecting the gate to ground avoids the channel formation. Taking a small metal jump to the higher level is the first step that s

## Quention about antenna effect

## N-type and P-type antenna diodes roles

Hello all, I have one clarification, can anyone help me in this? Actually for antenna effects, we keep antenna diode to protect gate from charge formed on long metals connected to gate. Normally which type of diodes are preferable? N-type or P-type? else we should keep both N-type and p-type diodes at the gate? Please (...)

## What is an antenna effect in chip design?

When a chip is manufactured, long metal wires acts like an antenna and picks up charge. If this long wire is connected to a MOS gate, it can blow the gate. So, manufactures typically have max length of metal that can be connected to a gate. You can add diodes or jump layers to help fix antenna violations. diodes will (...)

## Antenna diodes explanation

antenna diodes are required to protect the gate oxide of mos transistors from charge during wafer fabrication. Polysilicon and metal layers are (nowadays- formerly wet processes were used) etched by means of plasma processes. Plasma etching can lead to charge built- up in metal traces. If these metal traces are connected to a gate, the gate oxid

## how to limit LNA input to be <0dbm (choosing pin diode)

If your transmission on 430MHz is at different time than the receiving on 433.92MHz, and if you use the same antenna for both RX/TX, the only thing that you need is an antenna switch SPDT. You can make one of these using PIN diodes:

## CP microstrip antenna

circular polarization can be obtain by using shorting pins and plates in design.. generally in reconfigurable polarization diversity antenna's switches, diodes (which are made ON and OFF for changing polarization) can be replaced by shorting pins or plates... i.e. ON switch can be replaced just by shorting pin and OFF switch is replaced by open sp

## Reversed Biased Diode

I don't think it necessary to add a reverse-biased diode at EACH gate. But it is necessary to add diodes to SOME of gates which otherwise will voilate the antenna rule.
