  • Presents ideas that are state-of-the-art in the area of compact wireless terminals, and constitute an autonomous entity in the existing literature
  • Introduces a perspective of implementing compact terminals with increased multiplexing capabilities
  • Includes case studies and examples applying the underlying theory

This  book covers a cross-section of two technologies: parasitic antenna arrays driven via analogue circuits; and MIMO technology for multi-antenna arrays.  The combination of these two technologies results in novel functionality. Relevant technical angles, ranging from theoretic to electromagnetic considerations; from analogue circuit to digital baseband control for signal generation; and from channel modeling to communication theoretic aspects are detailed by the contributors. Potential applications are considered in conjunction with current and upcoming wireless standards is provided.
