Reconfigurable antennas change polarization, operating frequency, or far-field pattern in order to cope with changing system parameters. This paper reviews some of the past and current technology applicable to reconfigurable antennas, with several examples of implementations. Mechanically movable parts and arrays are discussed, as well as more-recent semiconductor-component and tunable-material technologies applicable to reconfigurable antennas.
