WEBINAR: Embedding Virtual Antenna™ in IoT devices with CST Studio Suite

18 Jun 2020 Events

Dassault Systèmes and FRACTUS ANTENNAS open the registration for the webinar: Embedding Virtual Antenna™ in IoT Devices with CST STUDIO SUITE.

This webinar is addressed to Microwave, RF, Wireless, Electronic, and Antenna Engineers to learn how to embed Virtual Antenna™ into any IoT platform for any band. Virtual Antenna™ components are now available in the CST Microwave Studio software, therefore, the design of IoT devices embedding Virtual Antenna™ with CST STUDIO SUITE becomes very easy and fast.

Any wireless designer can now complete a full RF wireless design including the antenna. With Virtual Antenna™, there is no need for a complex custom antenna design anymore. The antenna component becomes packed in an off-the-shelf, SMD chip and the only thing needed for completing the design is finding the right spot and placement of the antenna into your device, together with the right matching network to shape its frequency response.

Free registration open now!

About CST Microwave Studio

CST Studio Suite® is a high-performance 3D EM analysis software package for designing, analyzing and optimizing electromagnetic (EM) components and systems. Electromagnetic field solvers for applications across the EM spectrum are contained within a single user interface in CST Studio Suite. The solvers can be coupled to perform hybrid simulations, giving engineers the flexibility to analyze whole systems made up of multiple components in an efficient and straightforward way. Co-design with other SIMULIA products allows EM simulation to be integrated into the design flow and drives the development process from the earliest stages.

Microwave Journal publishes a whitepaper to optimize the antenna in a mangOH Yellow design

17 Jun 2020 News

FRACTUS ANTENNAS and Sierra Wireless have published a new technical whitepaper to show how easy it is to optimize the LTE antenna performance embedded in a cellular IoT device based on the mangOH® Yellow platform.

The mangOH® Yellow platform super-smart edge open-source solution has a compact form factor (65 x 42 mm, smaller than a credit card) and includes a tiny RUN mXTEND™ antenna booster component, part of the Virtual Antenna™ family. The mangOH® open license allows engineers to reproduce the design as needed and prototype ideas quickly and go to market in weeks. This is in part possible because the miniature chip antenna component is connected to the RF transceiver through a matching network that shapes the frequency response of the wireless platform, therefore going from a mangOH® Yellow prototype to a final product does not require changing the antenna part: the same off-the-shelf component will fit any device with just a little tune of the matching network.

The whitepaper “Optimizing Wireless Connectivity with Embedded Antennas” is already available via the Microwave Journal online magazine.
