Panel

Antennas

  • PC board material separating

  • two copper plates

  • Dimensions a, b, x’, y’ adjusted

  • to give antenna characteristics


Antenna development plan

Antenna Development Plan

  • Analytical estimations to determine directivity,

  • input impedance, degree of polarization, and

  • resonant frequency (iterative process)

  • Network Analyzer

  • Anechoic Box / Anechoic Chamber (UCSF)

  • Far-field testing using 11m dish
