Method for Isolating Antennas Using Meandered-Line Ground Plane Surface Wave Filter


A wireless communication device includes multiple antennas spaced apart from each other. Also included is a dielectric substrate with electrically conductive ground areas along the substrate opposite the antennas. Signal coupling is decreased between the antennas by connecting the ground areas together with an isolation structure. In one nonlimiting form, this structure includes an electrically conductive meander line structure.
