Adaptive antenna technology represents the most advanced smart antenna approach to date. Using a variety of new signal-processing algorithms, the adaptive system takes advantage of its ability to effectively locate and track various types of signals to dynamically minimize interference and maximize intended signal reception. This paper presents the design and development of a Micro Antenna for SoC, working at 43.763 GHz and controlled by independent MEMS based DMTL Phase Shifters which are low power in nature. The authors have also explored other required low power SoC devices which would also have the ability to reconfigure to the demands of their communication device.
