dBic

[′dē‚bik]
(electromagnetism)
The directive gain of a circularly polarized antenna, expressed as the ratio, in decibels, of the antenna's directivity to that of an isotropic antenna with the same polarization characteristic. Derived from decibels over isotropic.

CFC 1's Section 163(j) limitation is $60 ($200 of ATI multiplied by thirty percent), creating a $12 DBIC, and CFC 3's Section 163(j) limitation is $22.50, creating a $10.50 DBIC.
The minimum requirement of gain of the antenna design is approximately 5 dBic. The results of simulation and measurement meet the minimum requirement.
As shown in Figure 12, the peak gain of proposed antenna array without loop cavity is less than 12.8 dBic, and the band width for gain [greater than or equal to] 10 dBic achieves 35.6% (1.20-1.72 GHz).
DBIC and NORDIC will be combined into TDIC and the companies will operate as The Dentists Insurance Co.
The measured antenna gains at the boresight direction for 1.268 GHz and 1.561 GHz are 3.4 and 2.9 dBic, while the measured antenna radiation efficiencies can reach up to 77% and 72% as shown in Figure 15, respectively.
Throughout 800-1000 MHz, the gains of proposed antenna varied slightly, between 1.7 dBic and 2.3dBic.
It is assumed that the minimum gain within coverage for the GPS signal is about -6 dBic in RHCP (right-handed circular polarization) [9].

In addition to leading all operations at TDIC, DBIC and NORDIC, Spinelli will oversee the growth strategy for these companies.
The peak realized LHCP gain with simultaneous excitation is 8.2 dBic, which is almost equal to the realized linearly polarized (LP) gain with respective excitation.
Though the CPW-feed can present 3-dB AR bandwidth (68%) and 10-dB return loss bandwidth (107%) [8], its measured bore-sight gain is only 3.0 dBic over the CP bandwidth.
This antenna operates at a frequency range of 2200 to 2300 MHz, offers a nominal gain of 18 dBiC and a noise temperature of 70 k typical.
