## Question on log periodic dipole antenna

I would guess the transmission line Z is around 70ohm like other 1/4 wavelength dipole antennas. According to literature, it's more complicated. As a simplified idea, imagine that the characteristic feed line impedance loaded by the dipole elements equals the antenna input impedance. So it's always higher than the antenna (...)

## HFSS antenna imput impedance

I need simulate an antenna in HFSS for RFID. The internal impedance of IC at 915MHz is 12.8-j248 (NXP UCODE7). This is a serie impedance. To simulate this impedance I use a Lumped port with equivalent parallel resistance Rp ~ 4.837K and a capacitance of 0.7pF in parallel using a lumped RLC. Both in parallel connected to a (...)

## Antenna and line transmition impedance

Yes, you see almost real impedance of an antenna at it's center frequency, e.g. a dipole with length of lambda/2. An antenna is a distributed device, it has no physical L or C. In so far the quoted |Z| equation (not valid for Z) describes only a possible antenna equivalent circuit in a limited frequency range, not an actual antenna. As for the e

## Induced EMF method for antenna self impedance

Hi, I was going through the induced EMF topic for finding the self impedance of a thin dipole in Balanis and he has writen this equation: V1 = (1/I1)* ∫ Ez*Iz dl where V1 and I1 are the voltage and current at the dipole terminals. Ez is the z directed electric field and Iz is the current at z distance from the origin. I could not (...)

## Designing a GSM monopole to dipole transformer

Hello guys, I am currently making a design including a GSM module which has a 50 ohm impedance output for the antenna. However I am interested in using a dipole (73 Ohm img 43Ohm) antenna with this module. I have been searching around for either a dedicated , or discrete balun that can handle this transformation, with no luck. Does anybody h

## Balun for 437MHZ narrowband dipole

................... P.S my dipole is precisely 50 OHM and so is the coaxial cable so no need for impedance transformation. I only need to eliminate the coax shield currents. How did you achieve that ? ... dipoles are 75 Ohms by nature ( folded ones 300 Ohms) ... what impedance matching did you do ? Dave

## Need circuit for microvolt detection

Hi, I am looking for a circuit to measure the voltage of a DNA dipole. The voltage could be around 125 micro volts. but it could be better to have a circuit which could detect between 50uV to 200uV. looking for earliest replies. thank you.

## Urgent help regarding printed dipole using HFSS

Your dipole has apparently a fundamental resonance (λ/2) at about 570 MHz. The order of magnitude looks plausible according to the dimensions. Review your design equations.

## Questions Concerning Radiation Boundary in HFSS

Hi I have a question about the Radiation Boundary in HFSS itself. I am simulating a dipole with a lumped port feed and I notice changes in the resonant impedance/frequency when I change the size of the Radiation Boundary. According to the design requirements, I gathered that the minimum distance of the radiation boundary away from the radiating

## 2.4 GHz Wifi; RG-58/U coaxial cable with 50 Ohm impedance as Balun for Folded Dipole

Hello, I am building a 2.4 GHz Yagi-Uda directional antenna for Wifi. I use a RG-58/U coaxial cable with 50 Ohm. I use the Yagi calculator of VK5DJ as a guide: The folded dipole has an impedance of 288 Ohm. The transmission line has an impedance of 50 Ohm. The impedances do not match, so impedance (...)

## HFSS hafl wave dipole's imaginary impedance does not reach to 0

I have tried to simulate a half wave dipole with HFSS using PEC. The dipole is 38.75mm long with a small gap (0.4mm) between the two arms to allow a lumped port to be put there. So this should be a half wave at around 1.8GHz. But the imaginary impedance does not even reach 0 (smaller than 0). How can I determine the input resistance of (...)

## HFSS : Impedance Vs wavelength

Hi in literature sometimes we give the input impedance as a function of L / lambda0 (normalized length) Please, can someone show me how to do to plot it as a function of L / lambda in HFSS for whatever structure (e.g. for a dipole, or a patch antenna). of course I know how to do it as a function of frequency. Thanks

## Dipole current distribution and Zin

Not quite. That is contradictory. For a dipole you can choose 1/4, 1/2 and 1 wavelength. Resonance is non reactive just below theoretical due to fringing and thickness. more details here 1/2 wave is most common.

## about driven yagi antennas

hi guys.. what happens to the feed resistance of an antenna when the reflector and the director are placed on either side of a dipole? what happens to the beamwidth when the number of directors are increased? what is the approximategain of a three element parasitic array? a circular polarised yagi enables the receiver to obtain signals from...?

## How to calculate the matching network for a dipole antenna short than the half wave

You can get a formula for the complex impedance of the antenna from Wikipedia under "Short dipole" on the "dipole Antenna" entry. and there is a section on "General impedance can use a calculator on it. You will be looking to

## Design of feed for dipole antenna in hfss

how to design a co planar stripeline feed and integrate it to dipole antenna with reflector?. i have designed the antenna but it is showing a VSWR of 3 instead of 2 . need assistance for design and integration. impedance is 150 ohm and hence need to design the width of the feed and gap of the feed to the dipole antenna ant to integrate.

## Short Dipole for 1.9 GHz

One-tenth wavelength dipole, 1.9 GHz on FR4 PCB. About 10 mm long antenna? Yes it is possible to design and impedance match a such antenna. Anyone can do it. Very few can do it and get reasonable performance. Good skills how to set up a VNA is recommended as short antennas and extreme impedances both requires good calibration to be able to (...)

## Help in a problem in Balanis Antenna theory.

I don't even know where xxx comes from. It's just putting in the said geometry (length and feed point) into the general dipole current distribution expression (4-56), page 170.

## mutual impedance of two dipole antenna array

Clarification of terms. you say "dipoles are λ/2". At which frequency? How do you measure "mutial impedance" of antennas? In network analysis, mutual impedance involves a driving current source and open circuit voltage measurement, which is hard to implement in RF frequency range.

## Finding VSWR of dipole antenna

You are correct, your formula for gamma is only valid for Im(Zin) = 0 (that is Xin=0). You can see that when plotting the impedance on a Smith Chart. When there is an Im(Zin) part, the impedance moves towards the edge of the Smith Chart. Can it be that the length of the antenna is specified as the length of one half of the dipole? So (...)

## How to define an antenna at ADS?

Hello, I have simulated a dipole antenna at HFSS. Now, I would like to use it in a design at ADS. In this way, I would like to have a two-port block that would mimic the impedance frequency dependency of the antenna. Probably at port 1, the impedance should be always equal to 50ohms, while the impedance at port 2 should (...)

## relationship between Antenna length and frequency

Antennas can be of any length related to wavelength. A good antenna must have an impedance matched to its feed line, and its radiation pattern is selected according to its use. Half-wave dipoles were found optimum in both aspects. In fact, 0.47 wavelength is the optimum dipole length.

## Dipole antenna, balun and impedance matching

Hello, I'm trying to make a dipole antenna for UHF (433 MHz). I have a 50 Ohm unbalanced output so I need to balance it and do an impedance matching to get the best performance possible.

## How to create a Dipole on FEKO with varying length

Hi, I'm pretty new to FEKO but as an assignment, our professor wants us to create a dipole and analyze it "over a broad spectrum" On his sample graphs he showed us a plot of the impedance vs dipole Length. I was wondering how to do this. I can create a dipole using a fixed length but I can't seem to figure out if it's (...)

## feed position of bow tie antenna

Is your bow antenna above a ground plane, as this has large influence on input impedance? feeding a dipole off-center, will raise the impedance, but you get a large common mode component, that will increase the common mode current in the coaxial feed line. The common mode current contributes to the radiation pattern (mostly not desired). (...)

## Folded antenna + balun : matching question

Dear all, I have a question about matching a printed folded dipole. I am working at 2.45GHz My antenna is connected to a 50 ohms /50 ohms balun, then connected to a 2-ports VNA, for s11 evaluation. At the frequency of interest, the impedance is Z; is this the impedance of the antenna seen from the VNA? Because I need to tune this (...)

## How do I add a new antenna to the HFSS Antenna Design Kit ?

I believe the HFSS Antenna Design Kit (ADK) can be extended by adding your own code, but does anyone have any instructions on how to do this? For example, lets assume I want to be able to design a folded dipole to have a specific impedance. One can achieve this by having the two sides of the dipole of a different diameter, and there are (...)

## Does HFSS account for mutual coupling effect automatically?

I have 5-element λ/2 dipoles spaced 0.1λ apart (they all show in the model...I am not using the Antenna Array Setup wizard). They are all excited with 1W each and the port impedance for each is 73ohms. After simulation, the power accepted is about half less than power incident. When simulating one half-wave dipole alone with 73ohms (...)

## Input impedance of a half-wave dipole immersed in a dielectric.

I've tried to simulate using HFSS a thin half-wave dipole which is immersed in a perfect dielectric with Er=81. (This is the same dielectric constant as water, but I used a perfect dielectric for the simulations to get a feel for the results, and to later see how much the conductivity of real water effected the antenna's properties). I c

## HFSS accepted power puzzle in a lossless matched antenna array

Hi alberthyc, Could you share how you figured out where the remaining power went? I'm trying to impedance match a 5-element dipole array but with no luck. I tried to match it with Active Z re and im values, but I still get power accepted much less than power incident. Thanks.

## active input impedance of 5-element dipole phased array in HFSS

How does one obtain the active input impedance of a 5-element dipole phased array in HFSS? I am using the Active Z measurement and plot re and im values. Is this correct? When I do this I get different impedance values for each of the elements. Shouldn't the impedance values be symmetrical around the center array, for (...)

## 900MHz RFID Dipole antenna impedance measurement issue

Hi all. I've been measuring my dipole antenna impedance at UHF band recently,i used single-ended two-port VNA and calculated the final differential impedance by some formula directly from S11/S22/S12/S21. Attached(the coaxial one) is my differential probe made by coaxial cable. Before measure the dipole,0603 100R resister (...)

## Why does UHF RFID TAG CHIP NOT use differential ports?

Anybody in work on UHF RFID design? We've been discussing differential impedance measurement for RFID antennas or tag chips, one question still bothers me, which is below. As we all know,dipole has differential ports, as the load of antenna,the TAG CHIP usually has single-ended port. Such as NXP/Alien, the tag chips have only one RF port and

## [URGENT] Half Wave Printed Dipole Antenna (433MHz)

Hi, I am currently designing 433MHz half wave Printed dipole Antenna with input impedance of 50 ohm using Ansoft HFSS 13. The problem is, i can't seem to figure out how to efficiently place the ground plane in the design. This is because, either the simulated radiation pattern is severely distorted or my Z11 graph and smith chart is does not yiel

## HELP:UHF RFID antenna impedance measure

Do really not understand if you have a dipole or two independent monopoles, and if dipole, why try to measure it in two halves. Anyhow, during a part of the measurement are you measuring S11 for one antenna element and RF ground do then only consist of your cable shield? If move your hand along coaxial outer shield, does then S11 at VNA fluctuate?

## Impedance matching log-periodic

Because the log periodic use a bunch of parallel dipoles, its impedance is actually lower than of a λ/2 dipole (which is about 73 ohms)

## Why do we use a folded dipole in Yagi Uda antenna?

Folded dipoles with equal diameter wires in both parallel lines increase the impedance by 4x. This will increase the lowered impedance (caused by the parasitic elements) to be more nearly equal to 50 ohms and make the impedance matching to the coax easier.

For that, I'm using a lumped port that is found in the middle of the dipoles, and it have the voltage that I want. But i'm having a very small input impedance. An I doing something wrong? I found to a model tutorial simulate that use the lumped (...)

## HFSS - Half-wave dipole has an input impedance of 84 + j 51 Ohms or even under 1 Ohm.

I've tried to simulate a half-wave dipole in HFSS, using a perfect electrical conductor (pec). The dipole is 500 mm long in total, with a small gap between the two arms to allow a lumped port to be put there. So this should be a half-wave at 300 MHz. Using a wire radius of 1 mm, with a 1 mm gap between the terminals, the input impedance (...)

## 88-108MHz fm transmitter

A quarterwave "whip" monopole will have an input impedance of Zin = 36.5 + j21.25 ohms at it's resonant frequency. A half-wave dipole would be 70 ohms. You can replace your antenna with one of these two loads, depending on what type of antenna you intend to drive. It should work as a first-order approximation.
