Creating mobile devices with multiple antennas involves a challenging balancing act. If you consider all the elements a mobile device designer has to contend with, it’s a lot. For starters, mobile devices have separate antennas for cellular (low, mid, high), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, Ultra-Wideband and diversity bands. They also have to contend with smaller, sleeker devices that have more capabilities, in addition to RF single range.
Using Qorvo antenna tuners helps optimize the antenna performance for each of these bands. But adding tuners does come at the cost of antenna efficiency. So, design care must be taken to maintain proper antenna efficiency and performance. Doing so requires optimizing the PC board layout. Qorvo offers a wide selection of antenna tuning components that provide best-in-class performance for a wide array of applications. The Qorvo antenna tuners were strategically placed to take advantage of their excellent RF performance characteristics to tune over the spectrum of mid and high bands and offer high efficiency.
