Multiport Circular Polarized RFID-Tag Antenna for UHF Sensor Applications

ABSTRACT

A circular polarized patch antenna for UHF RFID tag-based sensor applications is presented, with the circular polarization (CP) generated by a new antenna shape, an asymmetric stars shaped slotted microstrip patch antenna (CP-ASSSMP). Continue reading

Design of a Wideband Antenna for Wireless Network-On-Chip in Multimedia Applications

ABSTRACT

To allow fast communication—at several Gb/s—of multimedia content among processors and memories in a multi-processor system-on-chip, a new approach is emerging in literature: Wireless Network-on-Chip (WiNoC). With reference to this scenario, Continue reading

Design of Miniaturized Dual-Band Microstrip Antenna for WLAN Application

ABSTRACT

Wireless local area network (WLAN) is a technology that combines computer network with wireless communication technology. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands in the Industrial Scientific Medical (ISM) band can be used in the WLAN environment. Continue reading

Joint Antenna Selection and Beamforming Algorithms for Physical Layer Multicasting with Massive Antennas

ABSTRACT

We investigate the problem of minimizing the total power consumption under the constraint of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) requirement for the physical layer multicasting system with large-scale antenna arrays. In contrast with existing work, Continue reading

3D-Printed Super-Wideband Spidron Fractal Cube Antenna with Laminated Copper

ABSTRACT

In this paper, a 3D-printed super-wideband (SWB) Spidron fractal cube antenna is proposed. The Spidron fractal configuration is utilized as a self-complementary structure on each face of a 3D frame to attain SWB characteristics. The antenna is excited Continue reading
