Smart-antenna controller cuts board space, BOM, and battery load for smartphones

STMicroelectronics’ STHVDAC-253C7 digital controller for tunable capacitors such as ST’s STPTIC family shrinks the size, bill of materials (BoM), and power consumption of antenna-tuning circuits for stabilizing smartphone RF performance. Using the STHVDAC-253C7 with STPTIC capacitors for impedance matching and frequency tuning almost completely eliminates the effects of environmental variations, resulting in stronger signal reception, […]
