DF Antenna Assembly, designed and built by R. A. Wood Associates

Another great effort resulting in a great potential product!

R. A. Wood Associates designed and built a Direction Finding (DF) Antenna Assembly for one of our customers. The Assembly was designed, built, tested, and delivered in less than 6 months. The requirement was to develop an antenna assembly that could be used as a front end in front of a pair of COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf) receiver boards. The DF Antenna Assembly provided the capability to supply Direction Finding (DF) for incoming signals or emitters.

The DF Antenna Assembly included:
  • Capability to provide amplitude and phase DF between antenna pairs
  • 360 degree angular coverage
  • Low cost universal design (can be used with many different receivers)
  • Low noise figure RF front end (~3.5-4.0 dB)
  • Calibration injection to calibrate receiver amplitude and phase
  • Wide frequency coverage (500 MHz to 3 GHz)
  • High dynamic range
  • Digital Compass for DF Antenna Assembly pointing information
  • RF switches controlled by an Ethernet interface

Equalizer Designs now extended up to 18 GHz

Hello Everybody

We've enhanced our portfolio of equalizer designs with new high frequency equalizers, with low losses all the way up to 18 GHz!

We also now have a smaller package design (M02 package).

We can now offer low loss, high linearity equalizers over the following frequency bands:

  • 5 KHz to 2.0 GHz
  • 0.5 to 8.0 GHz
  • 1.0 to 8.0 GHz
  • 1.0 to 2.0 GHz
  • 2.0 to 4.0 GHz
  • 4.0 to 8.0 GHz
  • 4.5 to 12.5 GHz
  • 4.0 to 18.0 GHz
  • 8.0 to 18.0 GHz
For more detailed information on available designs, including measured S21 ans S11 plots, and package outlines, visit our "Equalizers on Demand" product page.
