Description

Compact multi-function antennas are of great interest in the field of antennas and wireless communication systems. Multi-Function Antennas for Microwave Wireless Systems offers an up-to-date description of modern multi-function antenna systems and microwave components. This valuable resource for professional engineers discusses circuit miniaturization techniques, such as the low-temperature-cofired-ceramic, system-on-package, and system in package as well as design considerations of the frequency- and pattern-reconfigurable antennas. Case studies are provided for both planar and nonplanar antennas.
