About this book


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.

Book review excerpts:

a.      Topics are well structured and are explained in depth.

b.      Each chapter is written by experts and contains a nice introduction and conclusion. The book addresses an important topic of physical aspects of MIMO antennas and and their economic implementation.

c.       The practical view is one the most important strengths of this manuscript. The results are confirmed by real tests. The antenna design and adjustable impedances are included.
