Improvements in Embedded Antennas for Broadcast Reception in Handheld Devices Unveiled
NAB FASTROAD today announces the release of two reports on the development of improved VHF and UHF frequency band antennas to support reception of broadcast radio and mobile DTV signals in handheld devices. These FASTROAD-funded projects were undertaken to help accelerate the proliferation of radio and mobile DTV receivers in cell phones, which can benefit greatly from the use of embedded antenna solutions.The
New, embedded antenna designs, such as those developed under these FASTROAD projects, offer a much more attractive antenna solution to handheld device manufacturers than the headset cords or fragile, telescoping monopoles currently in use. NAB and the antenna development partners encourage the use of these new designs by cellular handset and other portable device manufacturers for new radio and ATSC mobile DTV receiver products.
