64-antenna DRA design significantly improves performance over conventional patch arrays
Eindhoven, The Netherlands – October 21, 2019
Antenna Company, a specialist in the design of high-performance embedded antennas, today announced that it will be showcasing the industry's first 5G dielectric resonator phased antenna array designed specifically for 5G mm-wave applications. Antenna Company will be sharing details of the phased array design to customers attending MWC19 Los Angeles on October 22-24, 2019.
The 64-antenna DRA combines patented Antenna Company's SuperShape™ and DRA technology to achieve wide-band operation over the 24-30 GHz frequency bands. The mm-wave DRA array demonstrates reduced scanning losses, lower sidelobe levels and greater maximum scan angle compared to a conventional patch array using the same configuration and inter-element separation. The improvements in scanning performance enable better coverage over the usable frequency band.
The Antenna Company design achieves over 40 dBm of peak EIRP, which is ideal for use in customer-premise-
"Antenna Company is excited to announce this breakthrough in mm-wave antenna performance"
The production version of the design, featuring 64 dual-polarization antenna elements, 5G NR radio transceiver, RF front-end, and support for beam-steering and beam-forming is planned to be released in 2H-2020.
