REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Antenna Radiation  An antenna is just a passive conductor carrying RF current  RF power causes the current flow  Current flowing radiates electromagnetic fields  Electromagnetic fields cause current in receiving antennas 3 TX RX Width of band denotes current magnitude Zero current at each end Maximum current at the middle Current induced in receiving antenna is vector sum of contribution of every tiny “slice” of radiating antenna each tiny imaginary “slice” of the antenna does its share of radiating

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Antenna Polarization  The orientation of the antenna is called its polarization.  RF current in a conductor causes electromagnetic fields that seek to induce current flowing in the same direction in other conductors.  Coupling between two antennas is proportional to the cosine of the angle of their relative orientation  To intercept significant energy, a receiving antenna must be oriented parallel to the transmitting antenna  A receiving antenna oriented at right angles to the transmitting antenna is “cross-polarized”; will have very little current induced  Vertical polarization is the default convention in wireless telephony  In the cluttered urban environment, energy becomes scattered and “de-polarized” during propagation, so polarization is not as critical  Handset users hold the antennas at seemingly random angles….. 4 TX Electromagnetic Field current almost no current Antenna 1 Vertically Polarized Antenna 2 Horizontally Polarized RX

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Antennas basic types  Isotropic Radiator  Truly non-directional -- in 3 dimensions  Difficult to build or approximate physically, but mathematically very simple to describe  Provides a reference point for representing the gain of an antenna Usually expressed in dB isotropic (dBi)  Dipole Antenna  Non-directional in 2-dimensional plane only  The smallest, simplest, most practical type of antenna that can be made But that also exhibits the least amount of gain  Has a fixed gain over that of an isotropic radiator of 2.15 dB  For microwave and higher frequency antennas Gain is usually expressed in dB dipole (dBd) 6 YAGI Directional Antenna

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Decibels  The decibel (dB) is a logarithmic unit of measurement that expresses the magnitude of a physical quantity (usually power or intensity) relative to a specified or implied reference level. Since it expresses a ratio of two quantities with the same unit, it is a dimensionless unit.  Gains adds instead of multiply  Example: computing the T-R attenuation  P T =100, P R =10  [P T /P R ] dB = 10 log(P T /P R ) = 10 log(10) = 10 dB  Useful values:  [2/1] dB ~ 3 dB  [1000/1] dB = 30 dB  Expressing absolute values:  [n mW] dBm = [n/mW] dB Ej.: [1mW] dBm = 0 dBm  [n W] dBW = [n/W] dB Ej.: [1 mW] dBW = -30 dBW  From decibels to power: P = 10 dB/10  An interesting web page:  http://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/jw/dB.html http://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/jw/dB.html 7 log 10 2 ~ 0,3

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Radiation Patterns  An antenna’s directivity is expressed as a series of patterns  The Horizontal Plane Pattern graphs the radiation as a function of azimuth (i.e..,direction N-E-S- W)  The Vertical Plane Pattern graphs the radiation as a function of elevation (i.e.., up, down, horizontal) 8 Typical Example Horizontal Plane Pattern 0 (N) 90 (E) 180 (S) 270 (W) 0 -10 -20 -30 dB Notice -3 dB points Front-to-back Ratio 10 dB points Main Lobe a Minor Lobe nulls or minima

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 How Antennas Achieve Their Gain  Quasi-Optical Techniques (reflection, focusing)  Reflectors can be used to concentrate radiation technique works best at microwave frequencies, where reflectors are small  Examples: corner reflector used at cellular or higher frequencies parabolic reflector used at microwave frequencies grid or single pipe reflector for cellular  Array techniques (discrete elements)  Power is fed or coupled to multiple antenna elements; each element radiates  Elements’ radiation in phase in some directions  In other directions, a phase delay for each element creates pattern lobes and nulls 10 In phase Out of phase

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Types Of Arrays  Collinear vertical arrays  Essentially omnidirectional in horizontal plane  Power gain approximately equal to the number of elements  Nulls exist in vertical pattern, unless deliberately filled  Arrays in horizontal plane  Directional in horizontal plane: useful for sectorization  Yagi one driven element, parasitic coupling to others  Log-periodic all elements driven wide bandwidth  All of these types of antennas are used in wireless 11 RF power Collinear Vertical Array Yagi Log-Periodic

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Sector Antennas  Typical commercial sector antennas are vertical combinations of dipoles, yagis, or log-periodic elements with reflector (panel or grid) backing  Vertical plane pattern is determined by number of vertically-separated elements varies from 1 to 8, affecting mainly gain and vertical plane beamwidth  Horizontal plane pattern is determined by: number of horizontally- spaced elements 12 Vertical Plane Pattern Up Down Horizontal Plane Pattern N E S W

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Characteristics of the wireless channel  The wireless channel suffers basically from the effects of the following two phenomena:  Distance  Path attenuation  Multipath or scattering over time due to the differing paths of the signal  Other effects: diffraction, obstruction, reflection Ref.: “Wireless Communications : Principles and Practice”, Theodore S. Rappaport. 22 The green signal travels 1/2 more than the yellow line. The receiver receives the red line. For f = 2,4 GHz, = c/f = 12.5cm T R

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 More technically: Fading  “Path attenuation” and “Multipath” are also referred to using the terms slow and fast fading.  They refer to the rate at which the magnitude and phase of the signal change due to the channel.  Slow (large-scale) fading arises when the coherence time of the channel is large relative to the delay constraint of the channel.  In this regime, the amplitude and phase change imposed by the channel can be considered roughly constant over the period of use.  Example: a large obstruction such as a hill or large building obscures the main signal path between the transmitter and the receiver.  Fast (small-scale) fading occurs when the coherence time of the channel is small relative to the delay constraint of the channel.  In this regime, the amplitude and phase change imposed by the channel varies considerably over the period of use.  Examples: Multipath: Multiple copies of the signal arrive at destination Doppler shift of the carrier frequency: relative motion of the receiver and transmitter causes Doppler shifts 23

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Delay Spread  The difference between the first wave's arrival and the last arrival is indicated as the delay spread. Receivers can pick through the noise to find the signal, but only if the delay spread is not excessive. Some vendors also quote the maximum delay spread on their data sheets. Table below reports the delay spread for three of the cards listed above.  Cards rated for higher delay spreads are capable of dealing with worse multipath interference. The Cisco Aironet 350 was an extremely capable card for its day, capable of dealing with over twice the time- smearing as the Hermes-based card. 25 Ref.: “802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide,” Matthew Gast

REDES INALÁMBRICAS MIC 2010/2011 Path loss  Path loss (or path attenuation) is the reduction in power density (attenuation) of an electromagnetic wave as it propagates through space. Path loss is a major component in the analysis and design of the link budget of a telecommunication system.  Computing path loss: PL(d) = PL (d 0 )+10nlog(d/d 0 ) (dB)  PL(d 0 ) is obtained from Friis formula considering G t =G r =L=1: 28 TR d d0d0 dfdf
