ED2’s patented DWA elements enable new equipment that will beam point. In its basic form, the DWA is a cylindrically or cone-shaped dielectric rod that acts as a waveguide, radiating a beam whose width and gain is proportional to the RF frequency and rod length.


DWAs offer a few advantages over electronically steerable arrays, including lower cost, lower power consumption and more consistent beam characteristics. In terms of beam characteristics, DWAs produce symmetric antenna patterns, back lobe suppression and zero scan loss.

ED2 has patented linearly and circularly-polarized antenna elements, commercializing these products through partnerships. The DWA can easily be modified to support any mmWave frequency used by telecom. DWA designs that achieve 20-to 90-degree beamwidth (depending on polyrod length), with 20 dBigain along the antenna boresight (for the longest polyrod configuration). These antennas also benefit from being dual polarized.


DWA can achieve uniform signal coverage over a targeted area making it a great fit for mobility applications.
