Researchers at the University of Florida in the United States designed a new type of heat sink antenna for highly integrated wireless systems and phased array radars. In a typical case, manufacturers must use printed circuit boards (Printed Circuit Boards, PCBs) when developing small electronic devices to organize and guide the current flow of the product. One of the main components in these printed circuit boards is the patch antenna. The antennas currently available on the market cannot solve this problem caused by excessive power and heat flow, and as a result, it often limits other metal components on the product. In order to provide a low-cost solution to these problems, researchers at the University of Florida designed an innovative antenna that uses a heat sink to cool and protect the device. And this device can conduct power flow under conditions that are nearly optimal.
This new type of heat sink antenna can be used in many small electronic devices, including miniaturized wireless communication and computing systems that require integrated antennas, radio frequency transceivers, and high-speed processors, and the heat sink uses a small package.
This dual-function device is packaged in the form of a small electronic package, which can save space and can also solve the electromagnetic compatibility problem (ElectromagneTIc CompaTIbility, EMC). By setting the orientation of the heat sink, the height of the tail fin, and the configuration of the tail fin, the researchers were able to create a dual-function heat sink antenna for small electronic devices. Using a patch antenna to feed back to the heat sink and refer to the base area at the bottom of the heat sink allows researchers to develop two directions, which will improve the efficiency of the antenna. The main response frequency in these two directions can help design a smaller antenna and also improve the overall efficiency.
This new type of antenna improves efficiency, directivity, and overall power generation, and configures smaller electronics for the development process. The antenna design can be used in many small electronic devices, including miniaturized wireless communication and computing systems that require integrated antennas, radio frequency transceivers, and high-speed processors, and the heat sink uses a small package. It can also be used in phased radar arrays that require minimal active transmitter components and integrate antennas and high power amplifiers. Researchers have developed a working prototype, and they hope to bring this low-cost, dual-function antenna to the market.
