A key issue impacting the transmit to receive (TX-RX) isolation in Electrical Balance (EB) Duplexers is dynamic matching of the antenna impedance by the balancing network. Circuit simulations including embedded antenna measurements have been used to investigate the variation in TX-RX isolation due to interaction with the user and the local environment. Simulated results at 847MHz and 1960MHz show user interaction causes over 25dB of variation in the mean isolation over a 20MHz bandwidth. However, in reflective indoor environments, user interaction on average improves TX-RX isolation. This observed performance improvement is a result of reduced antenna radiation efficiency, which makes reflections from objects at longer ranges less significant and thereby reduces frequency domain variation in the antenna reflection coefficient.
