Researchers find way to increase range of wireless frequencies in smartphones

Matt Hamblen | Nov. 11, 2013
Results could lead to lower-cost components and better radio signals

Ng said the research means future inductors can be used to improve radio signal performance, which could eliminate the number of modules needed in a smartphone, with the potential to reduce the cost of materials.

Intel and Texas Instruments cooperated in the work, and the new inductor technology will be available for further industrial development by the middle of next year, followed by use in consumer applications by as earlier as late 2014.
