  • without changing the radio hardware itself. not only the wireless network but also the different wireless devices
  • Broad topic, we on antennaEmphesize that one antenna can work in only one frequecy band
  • Gain any dep. On app (dire. Long range then more req.), know less inerference req. so low gainUltarwide band?Short linearLong dist circu..less lossesPolarization=Linear S11 set 10 abovevswe gr8er 2 if this (energy rerflected) totaallly ref. avoid not possible
  • Parametric:- kowing which parameteres sensitive: that should be accurateCstr used for all
  • 2.2khatam
  • Coaxi TEM-> Quasi TEM in micstrip (wave from one medium to another)Radlosss, dielsctric lossTEM quasi TEM?Impp change…
  • Zo 50 so 50 req. (power loss 50 at 73 ohm and so on)Tapering ??Capa diff tapering if so smoothHigh cap??
  • Gain depends on this..

    1. 1. Studies on Microstrip PatchAntennas for Cognitive Radio (Under the Guidance of Prof. M. V. Kartikeyan) Bhanwar Singh Prateek Batla Pratik Kumar
    2. 2. Overview• Motivation and Scope• Problem Statement• Literature Survey• Work Done – Simulation – Hardware Realization• Results and Discussions• Future Work• Publications
    3. 3. Cognitive Radio• First proposed by Joseph Mitola III in 1998• A radio that can change its transmitter parameters based on interaction with the environment in which it works.• Currently under development
    4. 4. Need for CR• Available wireless bandwidth is limited and most of it is already allocated to different wireless services.• But some of the allocated spectrum remains idle most of the time.• Cognitive Radio makes use of spectrum when it is idle.
    5. 5. Requisite for Antennas• Monitoring of spectrum – To find out which part of spectrum is idle. Requires UWB antenna which can sense a broader bandwidth.• Reconfigurablity – Change parameters to work in idle part of spectrum. Requires a narrowband reconfigurable antenna.
    6. 6. Problem Statement• To design, fabricate and test a UWB antenna for CR with following specifications –• BW = 3.1 to 10.6 GHz• S11 < -10 dB• Gain < 5 dB• Pattern = Approximately Omni directional
    7. 7. Some implementation of CR
    8. 8. UWB Antennas- Methods to improve BW• Increase substrate height• Decrease permittivity• Introduce slots• Proper impedance matching• Unbalanced structure
    9. 9. Process of Design Design Specification Initial Design Parametric Analysis Optimization Final Parameter Selection
    10. 10. Initial Design
    11. 11. Initial Design….
    12. 12. Substrate Selection• Minimum Epsilon – Radiation Max. – Bandwidth Increase – But losses increase PTFE(Poly Tetra Fluro Ethylene) εr=2.5
    13. 13. Feeding – Why CPW, not MS ?• Mode purity• Truly planar structure, can easily be mounted.• Less radiation and dielectric loss.• Higher impedances can be realized, 30 -140 Ω.• Same impedance can be realized using different feed gap and feed width
    14. 14. Impedance Matching• Input impedance should be close to 50 Ω.• Tapering – Changing feed width and gap.• Abrupt changes introduce parasitic reactive elements which can be very high at higher frequencies, hence avoided.
    15. 15. Parametric Analysis• Investigate antenna by varying one parameter and keep all others constant.• Results to notice are |S11| and input line impedance.• Important parameters are dimensions of ellipse, gap between ellipse and ground, feed length and tapering parameters.
    16. 16. Dimensions of ellipse
    17. 17. Ground Line Length
    18. 18. Gaps
    19. 19. Feed Widths
    20. 20. Optimization
    21. 21. Hardware Realization Circuit Confirm Port Measurem-CST AutoCAD Board Dimensions Preparation ents Plotter
    22. 22. Hardware Realization• Export design to CAD.• Print antenna using dry etching.
    23. 23. AntennaDimensions were confirmed using microscope
    24. 24. S11 Measurement• R&S VNA• CaliberationProcess
    25. 25. Radiation Pattern Measurement
    26. 26. Calculation of Gain• Using Friis’s Transmission Equation Where Pr = Received power Pt = Transmitted power G0t = gain of transmitting antenna G0r = gain of receiving antenna
    27. 27. Results..• An antenna can be looked as – 1. A one port device 2. An EM device
    28. 28. S11
    29. 29. S11• The ripples in the experimental results are due to instrumental errors.• Contact losses between the port and the antenna.
    30. 30. Analytical Line ImpedanceClose to 50 OhmsTapering was done to make it close to 50 ohms.Causes reflections.

    40. 40. Limitations• Radiation pattern bandwidth of antenna is very short.• Contact losses are very high at high frequencies as port is simply soldered to the antenna feeding system.
