Hexaferrite Slant and Slot Mimo Antenna Element for Mobile Devices

TECHNOLOGY

There is increasing demand for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication technology for mobile devices due to the need for higher channel capacity. In a MIMO system, low mutual coupling and high isolation between antennas are important for obtaining antenna diversity and high radiation efficiency. Many designs exist to improve the isolation between neighboring antenna elements. However, in this work, we used slot removal in the ground plane presented to improve isolation and frequency matching, while slanted antenna elements provided pattern diversity. So combining these techniques might lead to further improvement in isolation and capacity.
