Abstract

In miniature mobile communication devices such as pagers, portable radios or cellular telephones, it may become necessary due to size constraints to make the antenna an integraal part of the housing. This increases the susceptibility of the antenna and its receiver fo electmstafic discharged transients. The following publica- tion is intended to give a working solution to resolve ESD problems on these types of communication devices.
