Nowadays the advanced radio system in mobile devices is utilized as part of wireless communication towards an upgrade of channel capacity. Top end applications have allowed high-speed networking interfaces to connect the mobile network with many wireless routers, which helps in data transmission in mobile systems. These network interfaces require huge power for high-speed data transmission. In this, diversity and spatial gains are the two principle points of interest of mobile devices with higher delivery of throughput that are utilized to concentrate on improving bit-rate by increasing the quantity of transceiver antenna systems. This paper introduces an energy conservation mechanism for mobile devices. The key idea in antenna management is to remove adaptively percentage of the antennas and additionally their RF chains to reduce energy dissipation due to circuit power. This mechanism will reduce the power consumption and improve power efficiency by disabling the subset antennas and its RF chains. The proposed system will decide the active antennas for power minimization while achieving its data rate requirements. Matlab simulation is used in the proposed study, and the results are validated using the performance parameters such as data rate, transmit power and data rate constraints.
