A mobile device typically has multiple antenna elements to enable antenna diversity and to accommodate multiple protocols, e.g., 4G, 5G, SRS, etc. When different antenna elements transmit or receive simultaneously, intermodulation products from one can reduce the sensitivity of another. This disclosure describes techniques to allocate antenna elements across protocols and antenna diversity schemes such that intermodulation desensing is minimized and transceiver-antenna connectivity is continuously maintained.
