1 ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Swartz 06/3/27 Lecture 16: 1 Waveguides Baluns Antennas ECE 488 RF Circuits and Systems Spring 2008 Lecture 16 2009/2/25 ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Swartz 06/3/27 Lecture 16: 4 Waveguides and their E and M Fields The fields propagate inside the waveguide. The vertical E is maximum in the middle and goes to zero at the left and right walls. To satisfy E t boundary conditions. E H ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Swartz 06/3/27 Lecture 16: 5 Standard Sizes of Waveguides Arecibo 430 MHz Wavelength = 70 cm Model #2100 Width = 21” = 53 cm Length = 1500’ = 457 m Power = 2.5 MW (peak) Loss = 0.5 dB, total Total Loss = 272 kW E H ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Swartz 06/3/27 Lecture 16: 6 Standard Sizes of Waveguides Arecibo 2180 MHz Wavelength = 14 cm Width = 4” = 10 cm Power = 1 MW (cw) Loss = 0.3 dB per 100 feet 700 Watts in every foot! E H ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Swartz 06/3/27 Lecture 16: 7 Shunt Capacitance in a Waveguide Size of wall determines capacitance. Sometimes adjustable with a screw through plate. ECE 488 – RF Circuits and Systems – Spring 2009 Swartz 06/3/27 Lecture 16: 8 Shunt Inductance in a Waveguide Just a little conductive wing attached to the wall.
