Ultra-Wideband butler matrix Fed MIMO antennas
2015 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)Text
This work elaborates on the design of an Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Butler matrix fed antenna array, implementing a Multiple Input-Multiple Output (MIMO) configuration. The system aims at applications in future Long Term Evolution (LTE) and multifunctional Radar systems. Specifically, based on the results of our previous works, the research is extended towards the implementation of a MIMO beamforming scheme. Different beamforming scenarios are applied, in order to maximize system performance and minimize noise and interference. A comprehensive analysis and design procedure is presented, along with system simulation results.
