Aperture Tuning for 5G Smartphones 

Antenna efficiency plays a critical role in overall smartphone RF performance. However, current broad trends in RF requirements – especially the forthcoming transition to 5G – and in smartphone industrial design, mean that smartphones must fit more antennas into less space. As a result, antennas are shrinking in size, which reduces antenna efficiency. Without compensating for this problem, the reduced efficiency can impact Tx and Rx performance, causing shorter battery life, lower data rates and connectivity problems.
