Fourth-generation (4G) wireless communications systems are on the horizon, promising to deliver integrated voice, data, and multimedia streaming anywhere, anytime...at higher data rates than ever before possible. Antennas are a key aspect of these systems, and this first-of-its- kind book offers engineers comprehensive coverage of the cutting-edge antennas that will be integrated in these complex 4G wireless communications systems. Written by a panel of leading experts in the field, the book serves as an authoritative, one-stop resource, including in-depth guidance on multiband integrated antenna design, simulation, testing and manufacturing. Supported with over 100 illustrations, this forward-looking resource presents the most recent design developments in the field, so practitioners don't have to spend valuable time searching through scattered journal articles for the details they need.
