Antennas are the beginning and end components of many communications systems, and the performance of modern wireless communications networks depends on these antennas achieving low passive-intermodulation (PIM) levels. PIM is a complex phenomenon that results in the generation of spurious energy. It is not caused by circuit materials, but results from the design and mechanical structure of high-frequency circuits, from circuit-assembly practices, and/or from system-level effects...
