Small & cost-effective antennas for GNSS

| News | No Comments
Barcelona, July 27, 2018 – Fractus Antennas has just published a new report that explains the advantages of using chip antennas instead of patch antennas for GNSS applications. Devices requiring a top GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou) are now portable, they are located everywhere and they are not always stable and facing the satellite reception. Using chip antennas for Global Navigation Satellite Systems reception is the best choice as they feature an omnidirectional radiation pattern that enables tracking satellites in any position and orientation. Using patch antennas for GNSS reception becomes problematic when the antenna is mounted on a small and portable tracking... +

Antenna design short course EuMW Madrid

| News | No Comments
Barcelona, July 10, 2018 – Fractus Antennas and Microwave Office have organized a hands-on course to show how designing a multiband antenna system is now as simple as designing the matching network. The antenna does not longer need customization thanks to the new generation of a tiny and off-the-shelf antenna component by Fractus Antennas called antenna booster. By using the booster mXTENDTM family and the Microwave Office Circuit Simulation Software the audience will learn how to make the design of IoT/Mobile devices simpler, faster and more cost-effective. This dynamic course is divided into two different parts. A detailed presentation of the antenna-less technology fundamentals... +
