antenna loading

antenna loading

[an′ten·ə ‚lōd·iŋ]
(electronics)
The amount of inductance or capacitance in series with an antenna, which determines the antenna's electrical length.
The practice of loading an antenna in order to increase its electrical length.

Although the microstrip antenna loading distributed resistance has low RCS, radiation efficiency of the antenna is sacrificed.
To minimize distortion and antenna loading, when an antenna is used in a shielded enclosure, the ends should be kept away from the wall by at least 0.5 meter.
In addition to Real-MIMO technology, Metalink's chipset utilizes sophisticated techniques such as channel bonding, advanced forward error correction (FEC) and antenna loading to increase WLAN performance, and achieves a 50 percent improvement in MAC efficiency as compared to earlier 802.11 solutions.
In order to verify this, numerical simulations are carried out to test the gain of the H-plane horn antenna loading the detached ZIML with different values of d and the contrast of antenna gain are depicted in Figure 10.
If the tests are performed inside a shielded enclosure, the enclosure must be large enough to handle the EUT and the necessary test antennas to minimize error caused by internal reflections and antenna loading.
