Microwave Journal Team visits the antenna-less Lab in Barcelona

17 Apr 2018 News

What is Virtual Antenna? What is antenna-less? Are they the same concept? Where is this new technology coming from? You can get the answer to these questions by reading the April issue of the Microwave Journal magazine. Fractus Antennas’ Virtual Antenna®

is the Fabs & Labs story of the journal this month: “Fractus Antennas: Making the Virtual Reality”.

The publication gives emphasis to the company’s lab where the engineering team develops this new technology that enables a full antenna performance in a really small package of only 5 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm. The Microwave Journal Team visited Fractus Antennas’ facilities last February, during their visit to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and they could personally check on site how the technology works by an in-house testing demonstration, including an active measurement in the anechoic chamber SATIMO Stargate 32.

One of the company founders, Dr. Carles Puente, guided the Microwave Journal Team during the whole visit so they were able to explore, from one of the lead inventors, the past, the present and the near future of the Virtual AntennaTM technology. Read now the new Microwave Journal Fabs & Labs article and discover the latest way of designing antennas: “Fractus Antennas: Making the Virtual Reality”.
