Application Note

Optimizing An LTE Antenna's Matching Network

Source: Remcom, Inc.

This application note describes the process of a simple antenna for LTE band operation added to the PC board of a smartphone in XFdtd being tuned for operation in multiple frequency bands. The component values in the matching network are chosen so that system efficiency is maximized. Download the full paper for more on how the XF Circuit Element Optimizer is used to characterize these systems using XF’s full wave FDTD solver.
