Written by an antenna engineer turned professor who has worked atApple, Nokia and Amphenol, Antenna Design for MobileDevices is a comprehensive guide for fresh and intermediateengineers involved in antenna design. The book instructs readersthrough all aspects of real world antenna designs, which includeshow to make a stable antenna fixture, designing various types ofantennas, designing an antenna with good manufacturability, usingvarious matching technique to improve antenna performance, settingup production measurement for mass manufacturing, and makingantenna SAR and HAC compliant. Most popular antenna categories,such as internal PIFA, integral IFA, internal folded monopole,ceramic antennas, stubby antennas and whip stubby antennas, areintroduced in the book. The book focuses on the basic principle ofeach kind of antenna and emphasizes on key parameters of antennaoptimization. Complimentary matching software, which accompaniesthe book, is provided so readers can practice various antennamatching technique and design matching circuits for real projects.
A one-stop design reference containing all an engineer needswhen designing antennas Accessible to readers of many levels, from introductory tospecialist Presents shortcuts for engineers who lack antenna knowledge butneed no-hassle techniques for designing simple antennas Contains hands-on knowledge not available in other books Written by a practicing expert who has hired and trainednumerous engineers Incorporates the various techniques used by pure-play antennafirms, established mobile device brands, and new entrants to themobile space Comes with antenna matching software written by the author,which can be used for practice and real-world projects Presentation slides with lecture notes available for instructoruse This book is targeted at practicing antenna engineers,particularly those focusing on mobile devices, as well asresearchers and academics looking to keep up with thisquick-changing field. Engineering managers will find it to be ahelpful guide for teaching new hires, while new hires, by using thebook themselves, will be able to quickly gain expert-levelproficiencies.
The book is also suitable for wireless networkequipment engineers, who desire a stronger sense of antennaprinciples, as well as electronic engineering students studyingelectromagnetics. Readers should possess a basicundergraduate-level understanding of electromagnetic theory. Companion website for the book: http://www.wiley.com/go/zhangantenna
