What is Flat Panel Antenna?

- Jun 13, 2019-

At present, there are several kinds of flat panel antenna, such as oscillator type and slot type, which are characterized by small size, light weight, small wind resistance, convenient installation and operation, convenient adjustment and high efficiency. 

One integrates the antenna with the built-in LNB, especially suitable for DTH application. 

Another with the integration of modem, BUC, LNB and antenna, especially suitable for mobile communication VSAT station, and is suitable for various emergency and field application scenarios. Now Starwin flat panel antenna is slotted waveguide array antenna, integrates the Modem, BUC, LNB, Power, Wifi, everything inside, only one cable for external connection.


The flat panel antenna formed by slitting on the conductor surface is a flat slot array antenna, which is also called a slotted antenna. A typical slit shape is elongated and has a length of about half a wavelength. The slot can be fed by a transmission line that is connected across its narrow side, or by a waveguide or cavity. At this time, a radio frequency electromagnetic field is excited on the slit, and electromagnetic waves are radiated to the space.

In recent years, flat slot antennas have attracted extensive attention and research due to their low profile, light weight, good planar structure, easy conformity with mounted objects, and integration. The amplitude distribution of the aperture surface of the slot array antenna is easy to control, and the utilization of the aperture surface is high, and the low side lobes or the extremely low side lobes can be realized. At the same time, the slot antenna also has the advantages of firm structure, simple and compact, easy processing, convenient feeding, and simple erection.

Starwin has been the list supplier for INTELSAT for flat panel antenna terminal, passed INTELSAT test and recommended to customers. Attracted lots of customer in the world, hope also can support you more.
