Log Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA-8003)

Log Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA-8003)

The TDK RF Solutions LPDA-8003 Log Periodic Dipole Antenna features an improved design offering superior performance over the ultra-wide frequency range of 800 MHz to 3 GHz.

The TDK RF Solutions LPDA-8003 Log Periodic Dipole Antenna is a new generation compact antenna used for transmitting and receiving broadband radio signals. It is especially suited for dual band communication testing where the antenna must not interfere with the measurement environment. The LPDA-8003 provides optimal performance over the wide operating frequency range of 800 MHz to 3 GHz. The LPDA-8003 features reduced cross polarization, improved pattern symmetry, and moderate power handling capability, making it an excellent choice for both communications testing as well as the most stringent metrology applications.

Leading-Edge Design
The LPDA-8003's compact design features a reduced boom size which results in excellent cross polarization rejection. The antenna's patent-pending balun design provides improved pattern symmetry and a low VSWR.
