Barcelona, February 2, 2018 – The Fractus Antennas Team has organized an antenna-less short course where attendees will learn how to apply the Virtual AntennaTM technology in a real scenario. The 12th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP), this year celebrated in London, is the place chosen to give the course on April 13th2018.
Dr. Jaume Anguera, recently appointed as the new Chief Scientist of the company, and Dr. Aurora Andújar will lead the course: “Ground Plane Boosters: Antenna Design for Wireless Devices“. The short course will introduce the audience, RF Engineers, Electronic engineers, Antenna Engineers, researchers and Ph.D. students, the technology able to replace the old customized antennas for an off-the-shelf, standardized and miniature component called antenna booster.
This dynamic course is divided into two different parts. A detailed presentation of the antenna-less technology fundamentals will be the main discussion of the first part, including booster specs, matching network architectures, multiband applications, among others. The second part of the session is designed to put the theory into practice. Attendees will be able to design two examples from the scratch using the Virtual AntennaTM technology on site and a unique and personal Microwave Office and AXIEM EM Simulator license that could be used for 5 more days. Fractus Antennas will provide ground plane booster samples, along with the software license, to all the participants that request them so everybody can test the antennas in their facilities after the course.
