The article reports on the increasing popularity of embedded antennas as mobile handsets transform into music players and video devices. Some mobile handsets have two, three or multiple antennas to lock-in a signal with the closest cell site. The demand for internal antennas posed problems for antenna makers due to the complexity of the antenna manufacturing process.
