This eBook looks at a new antenna design that can connect to any mmWave module and provide better efficiency than patch antennas yet still fit into the compact size form factor for smartphones and other mobile devices. The first article covers the design requirements and challenges for mmWave 5G compact smartphone antennas. The need for mmWaves is outlined followed by a contrast of 4G and 5G architectures highlighting the differences in their antenna designs. Case studies of deployment scenarios for outdoor and indoor links are presented. A detailed set of requirements for antenna designs of future smartphones is discussed. Some previously reported candidate antenna designs are also reviewed. The second article provides specific compact wideband design examples and the third includes several pattern diversity architecture examples.
