This book explores both the state-of-the-art and the latest achievements in UWB antennas and propagation. It has taken a theoretical and experimental approach to some extent, which is more useful to the reader. The book highlights the unique design issues which put the reader in good pace to be able to understand more advanced research.
Ultra wideband (UWB) has advanced and merged as a technology, and many more people are aware of the potential for this exciting technology. The current UWB field is changing rapidly with new techniques and ideas where several issues are involved in developing the systems. Among UWB system design, the UWB RF transceiver and UWB antenna are the key components. Recently, a considerable amount of researches has been devoted to the development of the UWB RF transceiver and antenna for its enabling high data transmission rates and low power consumption.
This paper concentrates on studying, designing and manufacturing a dual – band and high – bandwidth antenna applied for advance mobile handsets. This antenna can work in GSM/UMTS bands by generating two resonant modes of 900 MHz and 1900 MHz frequencies. Antenna is printed on FR4 substrate with size of 58 mm x 80 mm, thickness of 1.6 mm and relative permittivity of 4.4. The propose antenna is experimentally studied. Keywords: Antenna, dual-band, monopole, microstrip antenna.
Receiver System Parameters
A receiver picks up the modulated carrier signal from its antenna. The carrier signal is downconverted, and the modulating signal (information) is recovered. Figure 5.1 shows a diagram of typical radio receivers using a double-conversion scheme. The receiver consists of a monopole antenna, an RF ampliﬁer, a synthesizer for LO signals, an audio ampliﬁer, and various mixers, IF ampliﬁers, and ﬁlters.
