  • The evolution of mobile communications has increased the need for more complex antennas on the mobile side than the standard whip antenna. The need arises from several aspects, one being the cautionary measure of limiting the absorption and absorption density in the user's head, the other being optimization of the communication quality, including ease of use. Although not used widely as yet, antenna diversity on the handset is an important possibility of improving the performance. Knowledge… CONTINUE READING
