Floating antennas can provide fast, reliable 5G
Researchers are proposing a floating antenna design to help alleviate overcrowding in the electromagnetic frequency spectrum and boost wireless signals.
The researchers, from the ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) at Ohio State University, are designing suspended high-gain millimeter-wave antenna arrays constructed through a combination of 3D printing and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems).
Overcrowding will become more of an issue when 5G arrives. Already packed lower frequencies will come under increased...
