The Importance of RF Connector Selection in Antenna Design Whitepaper
With so many options available it can be difficult to know which RF connector is the best choice for your antenna application. This whitepaper offers an introductory guide to many of the common RF connector types used in the antenna industry along with their pros and cons, and why using high-quality RF connectors is paramount to antenna performance and ultimately the performance of the entire RF system. This white paper will also touch on some special RF connector designs specified by Southwest Antennas for specific application needs.
Understanding the Basics of MIMO Communication Technology
This white paper explores the basics of MIMO (multiple-in, multiple-out) communication technology, specifically focusing on the current generation of portable, tactical MIMO radios and the antenna technology that help make MIMO an attractive choice for today’s mobile wireless networks. This paper will touch upon topics related to the basics of understanding MIMO communication that can be understood by readers of all levels of technical levels, particularly those that are new to the RF market or have no previous working experience with MIMO technology.
White Paper: Modern Co-Site RF Interference Issues and Mitigation Techniques
RF co-site interference has become a major issue with the proliferation of antennas, particularly in dense urban areas. This paper offers a practical perspective for those using or specifying new RF wireless systems about what RF co-site interference is, where it comes from, and some of the most common techniques and tools that are available in today’s market to solve these RF co-site interference problems.
