Throughput requirements for emerging communication systems, radar, and smart location services require high performance and low-cost RF transceivers. For these new broadband systems, transceivers are fully integrated from the baseband digital circuitry through to the antenna array elements.
To properly design these integrated transceivers, accurate RF models are required in the study and development of innovative architectures. Models must operate across multiple bandwidths and account for impedance mismatches, noise, and non-linearity effects.
In this presentation, you will see how MATLAB and Simulink can be used to model integrated RF and antenna arrays where a combination of measured component performance along with data sheet specifications are combined with the full-wave electromagnetic analysis results describing the behavior of the antenna array.
