CTIA WIRELESS 2013, USA: Taoglas USA Inc., provider of antenna solutions to the M2M and connected device market, has teamed up with Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), to bring a dynamically tunable LTE antenna solution to the M2M market.
The solution contains an embedded surface-mount ceramic PIFA antenna from Taoglas — the Warrior PA.710.A — and Peregrine’s successful PE64102 DuNE Digitally Tunable Capacitor (DTC) on one evaluation board. It enables M2M devices to reach wide bandwidths and meet requirements for high performance using similar antenna space requirements as 3G/4G systems.
Additionally, it has the ability to dynamically change the antenna band “on the fly” to match the cellular band a radio module is using. This new solution can be immediately tested via Taoglas’ DTAD.01 evaluation board, which will be unveiled May 21st at CTIA in Las Vegas at booth #5534.
