Sammanfattning

When implementing low frequency antennas in small devices, e.g., mobile phones using DVB-H, a large mismatch is inevitable. If a impedance tuning unit is introduced reflection losses and noise are reduced while gain is improved. A ITU consisting of 6 switched capacitances and 2 fixed LTCC inductors is studied. Simulations show that since a VSWR = 10 mismatch is reduced to better than VSWR = 2, the ITU increases the power delivered by 2.9 dB to 4.2 dB for an antenna mismatch between VSWR = 4 and VSWR = 8. In the same time, the average noise figure for VSWR = 4 is reduced by 1.4 dB from 4.6 dB to 3.2 dB; and for VSWR = 8 it is reduced by 2.8 dB from 6.4 dB to 3.7 dB. The highest noise figure for VSWR = 8 is reduced by 4.2 dB from 9.1 dB to 4.9 dB.
