Joint Webinar with MTT:  “Antenna Optimization for Improved RF System Performance”

Abstract:  Antenna metrics and design techniques will be discussed with a focus on how the antenna system can limit or enhance the overall RF system performance. Trade-offs relating to antenna sizing and radiated performance as well as achievable bandwidth will be covered for antennas servicing the commercial wireless system. The benefits of beam steering will be discussed as a way of improving the overall communication link budget, which is becoming a more relevant topic as the industry moves toward 5G Sub-6 GHz applications. The benefits of antenna tuning will be discussed along with impacts to radio design to accommodate tuning.

Speaker: Jeff Shamblin, Lead Engineer – MMW Projects, Taoglas.

This lecture will be broadcast live and recorded on Zoom
