  • Patent number: 11031987
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may include a set of patch antennas in a quasi-linear arrangement along a top linear edge and one or more side linear edges of the UE in addition to a curved part between the two linear edges. For example, a first subset of the patch antennas may be linearly arranged on a first edge along the UE (e.g., the top of the UE), a second subset of the patch antennas may be linearly arranged along a second edge of the UE that is at an angle relative to the first edge (e.g., a side of the UE), and at least one patch antenna may be non-linearly arranged (e.g., quasi-linearly) on a curved line formed between the first subset of the patch antennas and the second subset of the patch antennas.

  • Patent number: 11025472
    Abstract: This application proposes multi-beam antenna systems using spherical lens are proposed, with high isolation between antenna ports and compatible to 2×2, 4×4, 8×8 MIMO transceivers. Several compact multi-band multi-beam solutions (with wideband operation, 40%+, in each band) are achieved by creating dual-band radiators movable on the track around spherical lens and by placing of lower band radiators between spherical lenses. By using of secondary lens for high band radiators, coupling between low band and high band radiators is reduced. Beam tilt range and side lobe suppression are improved by special selection of phase shift and rotational angle of radiators. Resultantly, a wide beam tilt range (0-40 degree) is realized in proposed multi-beam antenna systems. Each beam can be individually tilted. Based on proposed single- and multi-lens antenna solutions, cell coverage improvements and stadium tribune coverage optimization are also achieved, together with interference reduction.
