  • Patent number: 11411297
    Abstract: A buried wireless unit measures various soil parameters of surrounding soil and reports them to centralized equipment. In order to provide reliable communication with the centralized equipment, the buried wireless unit may extend a pop-up antenna when transmitting soil parameter data and may subsequently retract the antenna. The wireless unit unwinds and winds a wire, where an electrical cable connects the antenna to a communication module, in order to extend and retract the antenna, respectively. The wireless unit comprises a bendable sleeve enabling the antenna to be flexible so that damage to the wireless unit is avoided if a vehicle (such as a tractor) rolls over the wireless unit. In order to preserve the battery powering the wireless unit, the wireless unit may skip retracting the antenna when the wireless unit determines that charging level of the battery is below a predetermined charging level.

The cross bar antenna includes two thin coplanar perpendicular bars that intersect in the middle and are parallel to the ground plane. Each bar couples to the ground plane at each end, comprising an antenna loop. Thus, the cross loop antenna system comprises two intersecting single-fed loops. The antenna can operate at a wavelength that is approximately twice the length of the bars. In such an embodiment, the antenna system may be resonant. The distance between the bars and the ground plane may be relatively small, thus minimalizing the vertical profile of the antenna. The antenna may be operated as a dual-band antenna and may produce an omnidirectional radiation pattern. An aerial vehicle may include two such antennas.

    Abstract: An electronic device and an antenna module are provided. The electronic device includes a metal cover and the antenna module. The metal cover has a short slot and a long slot. The antenna module includes a substrate and an antenna structure. The antenna structure includes a first excitation segment, a second excitation segment, and a connection segment. Two projection regions respectively defined by orthogonally projecting the first excitation segment and the second excitation segment onto the metal cover overlap with the shot slot and the long slot, respectively. When a signal source is fed into the antenna structure, a first frequency band generated by the antenna structure and the short slot, a second frequency band generated by the antenna structure and the long slot, and a third frequency band generated by the antenna structure are different from each other in terms of corresponding frequency ranges.

  • Patent number: 11349199
    Abstract: An antenna structure with wide radiation bandwidth in a reduced physical space includes a housing, a first feed portion, and a second feed portion. The housing includes a metallic side frame, a metallic middle frame, and a metallic back board. The metallic side frame defines first and second gaps and the metallic back board defines a slot. The slot, and the first and second gaps, create a first radiation portion from the metallic side frame. The first and second feed portions are both electrically connected to the first radiation portion. When the first feed portion feeds current, the current flows through the first radiation portion, toward the second gap to excite a GPS mode and a WIFI 2.4 GHz mode. When the second feed portion feeds current, the current flows through the first radiation portion, toward the first gap to excite a WIFI 5 GHz mode.
