Complex challenges with 5G antenna

Miniaturization and design flexibility continue to be primary drivers for mobile device innovation. In order to achieve these objectives, it is necessary to reduce the size, and accommodate different shapes and locations of antenna structures while still maintaining the performance required for high bandwidth 5G applications.

An alternative option

Henkel’s PDS antenna technology frees mobile device manufacturers from conventional, non-sustainable techniques, allowing extreme design latitude and robust antenna performance.
