Antenna Design

Custom Antenna Design

Antenna design is very complex and can only be done with having the right development tools and experienced RF antenna design engineers. LSR is one of very few companies that has CST Microwave Studio simulation software to quickly develop the highest performance RF antenna design for your application and a 3-meter fully anechoic chamber to optimize and verify the performance of your integrated antenna. LSR can provide any level of assistance for your antenna design including: simulation, antenna tuning and matching, co-located antennas, antenna enclosure integration, prototype development, antenna patterns and characterization, and antenna manufacturing. Let our RF antenna design engineers help you obtain the best performance for your product.

Antenna Design Shop

Antenna Design Shop

With LSR’s Antenna Shop program, the guesswork can be removed from a complex antenna design by just selecting the right option for you. With a full complement of both tools and experience, LSR can help you make the most of your design by matching and optimizing an off the shelf solution, or designing a custom antenna to fit your application and enclosure.

LSR has created seven simple options to choose from to fit your requirements:

Option Cost Average Duration
Antenna patterns on existing implementation $3,500 1 wk
Antenna match of existing implementation $6,800 1 wk
Antenna match of existing implementation (with patterns) $9,000 2 wks
Implementation of COTS antenna onto PCB $11,000 2 wks
Implementation of COTS antenna onto PCB (with patterns) $13,200 3 wks
Custom antenna design with defined enclosure $16,000 3 wks
Custom antenna design with undefined enclosure $22,000 4 wks

Antenna Examples:

During the antenna simulation stage, we’ll work with you to determine the best topology to choose for your application. We take into account size, cost, performance, aesthetics and manufacturability to make sure there are no surprises once your antenna goes into production. Below are some of the antenna topologies that LSR can design for you:

  • PIFA
  • Dipole
  • Monopole
  • Patch
  • Loop
  • PCB (various types)
  • Helical
  • Slot
  • Medical Implant
