Dr. Jaume Anguera, Chairman at EuCAP’17, presents 4 x 4 MIMO solution based on Virtual Antenna boosters

News 03 Apr 2017

Dr. Jaume Anguera and Dr. Aurora Andújar, main inventors of the Virtual Antenna technology, attended the 11th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP), held in Paris, France, on 19-24 March 2017.

Dr. Jaume Anguera, was invited to be the Chairman at the session “Small and Compact Antennas”. Dr. Anguera presented the 4×4 MIMO solution based on the Virtual Antenna booster. This solution allows integrating 4 boosters with a footprint of just 3.2mm x 3.2mm x 10mm, such as that of the BAR mXTEND antenna booster product, into a smartphone platform to implement a MIMO system operating at 824MHz-960MHz and 1710MHz-2400MHz.

Dr. Aurora Andujar presented a solution based on the RUN mXTENDTM antenna booster with a reduced clearance on the groundplane. The architecture comprises a non-resonant element of 12mmx3mmx2.4mm (h) operating at 824MHz-960MHz and 1710MHz-2690MHz with a ground clearance of 20mm x 11mm suitable for smartphones.

The EUCAP has become over the years a major and referenced event in the area of antennas and propagation and now attracts a wide audience from all continents. From its early times, EuCAP has been created in order to foster the meeting and cross-fertilization between academia, research centres and industry. To that aim, tools such as application tracks, industrial workshops, technical tours and above all a large exhibition have been implemented, in narrow association with the conference.
