Which is Better: Simulated or Measured Performance for Simple Antennas?

Measuring antenna pattern and gain accurately is often a challenge. It is not only due to the demand of expensive test equipment, but also the requirement of skilled and knowledgeable workers. In addition, it is impossible to avoid the interactions introduced by the test equipment and test fixtures/equipment holders. Unlike most microwave component testing, antenna … Continue reading Which is Better: Simulated or Measured Performance for Simple Antennas?
