Antenna and RF solutions provider Ethertronics launched Ether 1.3.1, an adaptive antenna solution ready for integration in smartphones or other classes of phones. Ether 1.3.1 can reduce antenna volumne by 50%, yet maintain compliant performance, according to the company.

Obtaining design flexibility is paramount to rapid Time to Market (TTM). Ether 1.3.1 can realize this flexibility by allowing more degrees of freedom in the antenna structure design through the use of active impedance matching techniques.
