Active Antenna Systems for Maximum 4G Performance
Active antenna systems bring added dimensions of capability to wireless devices, including a dynamic interaction between the antenna and RF system. Moving to 4G LTE, active antenna systems are needed to provide high performance and connectivity, as well as covering all of the LTE frequency bands.
Ethertronics offers a portfolio of active antenna solutions to solve a myriad of 4G issues. Ethertronics’ EtherSmart LTE 1.0™ product line uses Active Impedance Matching techniques to resolve a number of issues in mobile devices including covering more bandwidth in same volume, smaller size with same performance, offsetting head and hand effects, faster time to market and improved spec compliance across bands.
The company’s EtherBook 1.0™ product line leverages Active Band Switching techniques. EtherBook 1.0 is the only antenna available that can be integrated inside of a notebook by the device manufacturer, as its high performance capabilities and small antenna volume allow it for fit into the thinnest notebook displays. Its benefits include the ability to be embedded inside, which means no additional cost to the consumer, and no loss or breakage. The award-winning antenna system also enables global operation given its ability to tune across all LTE bands, and allows for faster approval cycles from regulatory bodies and carriers
