EM Simulation for Mobile Communications
As mobile communication devices become thinner, smaller and more complex with every generation, designs need to meet new standards of performance. Using electromagnetic (EM) simulation, engineers can not only design and optimize the antenna of mobile devices, but also test its performance within the handset, for example, by evaluating coupling effects and the impact of dielectric materials, and investigating the influence of the human body on performance.

Flat Antennas SENCITY Matrix
As mobile data traffic levels continue to rise, small cells are increasingly being seen as a vital component of a modern heterogeneous network. The small size of HUBER+SUHNER SENCITY® Matrix antennas allows operators to access rooftop, wall and street level sites. HUBER+SUHNER offers a range of stand-alone antennas including radome, backplane and standard waveguide-interface that allows for quick adaption of this revolutionary technology. For entirely individual radio designs the antennas can also be purchased without housing. Visit www.hubersuhner.com for more information.
