Antennas - ¼-Wave, Parabolic, Dipole, etc.
Manufacturers & Services

Antenna design and interfaces are some of the most varied and difficult topics to cover in any one venue, whether it be a book, application note, or classroom session. Unlike amplifier and filter design that has a relatively limited parameter set and defined well-defined input and output expectations, antennas, being so dependent on their operational environment, end up having to be satisfied with a set of trade-offs that come reasonably close to meeting expectations. Unless you are operating in a fully controlled environment such as an anechoic chamber, the presence of multipath alone can break even the best antenna design. The aforementioned amplifier and filters and most other RF components have the luxury of performing their individual functions from within the protective safety of some sort of shield from outside influences. Even with sophisticated optimizations software, antenna design is still largely a "black art." That, undoubtedly, is why you are here looking for someone to do the job for you.

NOTICE: Search engines nowadays penalize websites for having many hyperlinks on a web page, so I no longer keep a list of my favorites. Most search engines do a really good job of locating useful data if your search terms are well thought out, so rather than me supposing I know what you are looking for, I have provided this Search box (and one in the upper-left page border) for you to use.
