The ultimate form of system integration is arguably to fuse conducting, semiconducting, and non-conducting materials into a single heterogeneous material having the multifunctional properties of a full-blown antenna system. This chapter introduces the so-called Deep Integration paradigm and discusses the fast numerical analysis of these potentially next-generation deeply integrated antenna structures. These multiscale problems are analyzed efficiently through a numerical enhancement technique, called the Characteristic Basis Function Method.
