Barcelona, January 23, 2018 – Dr. Jaume Anguera has been selected to lead the Fractus Antennas research team. Anguera, previously R&D Manager within the company, has been promoted to Chief Scientist becoming the top responsible for researching and developing new breakthrough technologies in the antenna field.
Jaume Anguera is an inventor with more than 120 granted patents, in particular, he is the lead inventor of the Virtual Antenna™ “antenna-less” technology together with his peer colleagues Dr. Aurora Andujar and Dr. Carles Puente at Fractus Antennas. The range of mXTEND™ products based on the Virtual Antenna™ technology, created by Jaume Anguera and his colleagues, enables full functional multiband wireless connectivity to smartphones and IoT devices through miniature and off-the-shelf chip components that replace traditional customized antennas.
Jaume Anguera: “The radical innovation of the antenna-less technology is its multiband capability, the mXTEND™ antenna boosters can deliver full mobile performance with a broad range of frequency bands with a single part number. This enables OEMs to shorten their time-to-market in developing new wireless devices while simplifying the logistics in the supply chain and reducing costs”.
