The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 18, issue 8, 2007, Pages 854~861
DOI : 10.5515/KJKIEES.2007.18.8.854
In this paper, a compact L-shaped shorted pin patch to be used at local oscillator port in radar detector is proposed. Shorted pin patch operates as short-open cavity while conventional patch operates as open-open cavity. Shorted pins are L-shaped to obtain quarter wave length and three-quarter wave length resonance for the fundamental(X-band) and
(K- and Ka-band) mode resonance frequency, respectively. Thus, the proposed patch can be compact. It is also possible to operate at triple band(X-, K-, Ka-band) with small return loss in radar detector, It is expected that shorted pin patch could improve radar detector sensitivity.

Rx and Tx signal use same band in RFID. Then RFID system is not used duplexer and used coupler. RFID system have problem about Rx part to Tx leakage signal because that Rx signal port is Tx signal port`s Isolation port. We proposal using phase shifter Tx leakage signal decrease than other RFID system. It is same signal Tx signal port`s coupling port and isolation port signal except amplitude and phase. So if make coupling signal and isolation signal is in all same signal. We cancel Tx leakage signal used coupling port. And verification about ADS2006.

In this paper, we present a frequency tunable and compact antenna which consists of a first-order Peano curve, two shorting posts, and two inductors which are serially connected between the posts and the edge of the Peano curve. By properly choosing the inductance of two inductors, the operating frequency of the antenna can be controlled without sacrificing the fractional bandwidth. To give good demonstration of the operating mechanism, the equivalent circuit of this antenna is included. To validate the simulation results, we have fabricated the several antennas of being integrated with different inductors, and the measured results show a good agreement with the simulated ones. The measured results reveal that the operating frequency is shifted from 1.47 GHz to 0.586 GHz without the decrease of the input impedance bandwidth. In case of integrating two inductors of 91nH and 470nH, the electric size of the antenna is only

We have implemented a highly efficient 2.14-GHz class-F amplifier using Freescale 4-W peak envelope power(PEP) RF Si lateral diffusion metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor(LDMOSFET). Because the control of the all harmonic contents is very difficult, we have managed only the
harmonics to obtain the high efficiency with simple harmonic control circuit. In order to design the harmonic control circuit accurately, we extracted the bonding wire inductance and drain-source capacitance which are dominant parasitic and package effect components of the device. And then, we have fabricated the class-F amplifier. The measured drain and power-added efficiency are 65.1 % and 60,3 %, respectively.

Kim, Il-Du ; Woo, Young-Yun ; Hong, Sung-Chul ; Kim, Jang-Heon ; Moon, Jung-Hwan ; Jun, Myoung-Su ; Kim, Jung-Joon ; Kim, Bum-Man ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 18, issue 8, 2007, Pages 880~886
DOI : 10.5515/KJKIEES.2007.18.8.880
We have proposed a new "hybrid" envelope elimination and restoration(EER) transmitter architecture using an efficiency optimized power amplifier(PA) and modified bias modulator. The efficiency of the PA at the average drain voltage is very important for the overall transmitter efficiency because the PA operates mostly at the average power region of the modulation signal. Accordingly, the efficiency of the PA has been optimized at the region. Besides, the bias modulator has been accompanied with the emitter follower for the minimization of memory effect. A saturation amplifier, class
is built using a 5-W PEP LDMOSFET for forward-link single-carrier wideband code-division multiple-access(WCDMA) at 1-GHz. For the interlock experiment, the bias modulator has been built with the efficiency of 64.16% and peak output voltage of 31.8 V. The transmitter with the proposed PA and bias modulator has been achieved an efficiency of 44.19%, an improvement of 8.11%. Besides, the output power is enhanced to 32.33 dBm due to the class F operation and the PAE is 38.28% with ACLRs of -35.9 dBc at 5-MHz offset. These results show that the proposed architecture is a very good candidate for the linear and efficient high power transmitter.

Perfectly-Matched DC Blocks Terminated in Arbitrary Impedances
Ahn, Hee-Ran ; Kim, Bum-Man ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 18, issue 8, 2007, Pages 895~903
DOI : 10.5515/KJKIEES.2007.18.8.895
Design equations of DC blocks terminated in arbitrary impedances are newly suggested and a microstrip DC block is tested for the perfect matching. The DC block is a two-port passive component and the power excited at a port is transmitted into another port. However, all the excited power at the input can not be delivered to the output and therefore most of the conventional DC blocks can not be perfectly matched with arbitrary termination impedances. To solve the matching problem, its one-port equivalent resonant circuit model, front which design equations can be derived, is newly suggested. Using the derived design equations, any DC block can be designed, perfectly matched without any restriction of coupling coefficients. To verify the derived design equations, measurements were carried out and the results are in good agreement with prediction, showing insertion and return losses at 4.1 GHz are 0.82dB and -31dB, respectively.

The Journal of Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science, volume 18, issue 8, 2007, Pages 970~976
DOI : 10.5515/KJKIEES.2007.18.8.970
This paper presents a novel polar transmitter architecture with a 2-bit sigma-delta modulator. In the proposed architecture, the 2-bit sigma-delta modulator is introduced to suppress quantization noise of conventional sigma-delta modulator. The power amplifier configuration is also modified in a binary form to accommodate the 2-bit digitized envelope signal. The Ptolemy simulation results of the proposed structure show that the spectral property is greatly improved in full transmit band of EDGE system. The fine quantization scheme of the 2-bit modulator lowers the noise level by 10dB without increasing the over-sampling ratio, which may be obtained if the over-sampling ratio increases twofold. Dynamic range is also enhanced up to 5dB owing to the new form of the power amplifier in the transmitter.

Recently, the number of systems which utilize wireless power transmission to a receiving module in a short distance is increasing. For efficient use of receiving space, coils are wound around the ferrite core to produce electromotive force(emf) in suppling power by wireless transmission. This paper analyzed the magnetic flux density distribution in the ferrite core in magnetic field environment which is uniformly oriented along to a single axis at 125kHz. For numerical analysis, Ansoft Maxwell which is applying the FEM(Finite Element Method) method was used. We studied the variations of the gathered magnetic fluxes to the changes of the relative permeabilities of the ferrite cores. Also we calculated the magnetic flux variation by shaving the ferrite core off for the groove of coil winding. Results showed that using a small ferrite core in magnetic field at 100kHz band can increase the amount of magnetic flux
than without the core. The magnetic flux decreased 23% by shaving the core 0.5 mm on the periphery of 4.75 mm radius core with the relative permeability 800.

This paper presents techniques of 2-D scattering center extraction and 2-B ISAR(Inverse SAR) image formation for scattering wave which is scattered by a target. In general, 2-D IFFT is widely used to obtain 2-D scattering center and ISAR image of targets. But, this method has drawbacks, that is poor in a resolution aspect. To overcome these shortcomings with the FT(Fourier Transform)-based method, various techniques of high resolution signal processing were developed. In this paper, algorithms of 2-D scattering center extraction and ISAR image formation such as 2-D MEMP(Matrix Enhancement and Matrix Pencil), 2-D ESPRIT(Estimation of Signal Parameter via Rotational Invariance Techniques) are described. In order to show the performances of each algorithm, we use scattering wave of the ideal point scatterers and F-18 aircraft to estimate 2-D scattering center and abtain 2-D ISAR image.
