Patent number: 11211682

Communication apparatus and method for adaptive cooling of antenna elements

Patent number: 11211682

Abstract: A communication apparatus that includes a first antenna array having a first plurality of antenna elements, and a first plurality of thermoelectric devices that are arranged on the first plurality of antenna elements of the first antenna array such that each thermoelectric device covers a different subset of antenna elements of the first plurality of antenna elements. The communication apparatus further includes a processor that determines an operational state of the first plurality of antenna elements. The processor controls each of the first plurality of thermoelectric devices based on the determined operational state of the first plurality of antenna elements such that an adaptive cooling is applied on different subsets of antenna elements of the first plurality of antenna elements to maintain a temperature of the first plurality of antenna elements in a specified temperature range.
