In this chapter the complicated engineering problems associated with embedding printed antennas into packages have been explored, in particular focusing on housing the antennas in computer terminals. The impact of the surrounding environment on the performance of the antenna has been looked at, including the impact of the user, and an overall design strategy has also been given. Finally, some future directions in this antenna technology have been discussed, including the incorporation of artificial magnetic conductors into the structures.
