Today Antenna79, a company specializing in advanced antenna technology for wireless devices, and Spring Mobile, the largest AT&T authorized retailer in the United States, announced the availability of the new ReachCase for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, as well as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, at select Spring Mobile retail locations and online at ReachCase.com. These enhanced antenna cases are designed to maximize a device’s signal performance while offering industry-leading protection. “The ReachCase is a one-of-a kind case, as it offers best-in-class protection for the phone and the unique ability to improve antenna performance. Now, for the first time ever, Galaxy S8 and S8+ users can maximize the performance of their device by simply extending the case’s built-in antenna,” said Gentry Jensen, CEO, Antenna79. “Using the ReachCase is simple—snap it on, slide it out and gain the benefit of a stronger signal.” “We are always looking to meet and exceed the needs of our shoppers and are excited to have ReachCase for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ and iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in our stores because this case not only protects the phone, but also maximizes performance,” said Brett Bradshaw, SVP Sales, Spring Mobile.

Tunable reflectarray unit cells operating at Ka- and X-bands are presented in this paper using barium strontium titanate (BST) technology. A patch antenna is capacitively loaded with a narrow gap in the middle and a thin-film BST layer is deposited under the patch. By tuning the dc-bias voltage across the gap, the dielectric properties of the BST layer are changed and then an integrated tunable capacitor is realized. The proposed design is evaluated using both full-wave simulations and measurements. Due to the monolithic integration of the tuning mechanism with the unit cell, the antenna element can be applied at millimeter-wave frequencies without suffering from packaging and bonding problems. The effects of substrate thickness, system pressure, and operating frequency on the performance of the BST-integrated unit cell are presented. An overall phase range of 298° and 263° with maximum reflection losses of 16 and 8.8; dB at Ka- and X-bands, respectively, are measured when the unit cells are operated for maximum phase range. By judiciously selecting the frequency of operation, a phase range of 250° with maximum reflection losses of 5.6 and 5.8 dB at 30.7 and 10.27 GHz are achieved. The presented analysis provides guidelines for optimizing the unit cell's performance required for efficient beam-scanning reflectarray antennas. © 2015 IEEE.
