Antennas: Jobs Was Right. They’re Still a Challenge

For most of today’s basic voice and data cell signals, the right antenna length is about three inches or seven inches. FM radio and broadcast TV antennas are longer, though antennas can be bent to fit inside tiny phones. The optimal length is half the frequency the antenna is designed to receive divided by the speed of light. Any longer or shorter, and the reception can suffer. Furthermore, “the [human] body has a major effect on the antenna because at different frequencies it acts differently,” says Stuart Lipoff, an electronics consultant.

And as phones continue to shrink, fitting antennas in and making them work correctly often comes down to trial and error, says Stephen Temple, a retired engineer who helped plan Europe’s GSM technology. “It would be fair to say that antenna design is a little bit of a dark art,” Temple says.

Nokia Siemens buys Motorola wireless network unit for $1.2B

IDG News Service – Motorola has found a buyer for its wireless network equipment unit: Nokia Siemens Networks will pay $1.2 billion for most of that business, the companies announced today.
