Antenna boosters course at EUCAP Krakow

| News | No Comments
Barcelona, March 7, 2019 – The Fractus Antennas (NN) Team has organized an antenna design short course to experience how easy is going wireless in just 3 hours by using the chip antenna components called antenna boosters. Go wireless with the antenna boosters by NN means that each course attendee will apply the Virtual AntennaTM technology in a real scenario to easily design an antenna wireless system for an IoT/Mobile device. The 13th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP), this year celebrated in Krakow (Poland), is the place chosen to give the course on April 5th2019. Thanks to its versatile nature, being a surface-mount component (SMD), the antenna booster works just like... +
