Model Makes Designing New Antennas Orders of Magnitude Faster

Researchers have developed a model that allows antenna designers to identify efficient configurations for antenna designs in minutes, rather than days. The model is designed to expedite development of next generation “multi-input, multi-ouput” antennas, which allow devices to get more use out of the available bandwidth.
