SkyCross Reveals New Products and Technology Platform as Well as Partnership Program to Advance Development of Next Generation Wireless Broadband Front-End Solutions
FREMONT, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
To further advance the development of next generation wireless broadband
front-end solutions, SkyCross today unveiled new offerings for wireless
device manufacturers and service providers, including
VersiTune-LTE (News - Alert)+Wi-Fi, the industry's first tunable LTE plus Wi-Fi antenna
solution for multi-band communications; a high-performance NFC product
line; and the SkyCross (News - Alert) Innovation Partnership Program (SIPP). SkyCross,
the leading global developer of advanced antenna and RF solutions, will
showcase its offerings at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) (MWC) 2013 event, to
be held in Barcelona, Spain February 25 - 28, 2013.
"The advent of LTE and carrier aggregation presents many new
opportunities for innovation, collaboration and industry growth.
Advancements with new NFC products and integrated LTE/Wi-Fi technology
are the result of SkyCross' continued efforts to assist mobile device
manufacturers and service providers in the adoption of LTE services and
solutions," said Ben Naskar (News - Alert), CEO and chairman of SkyCross. "We're
committed to partnering with the industry's leaders in delivering the
high-performance solutions to ultimately encourage consumers to take
advantage of advanced services and functions offered on today's next
generation, high-speed networks."
New Innovations and New Partnership Enable Breakthroughs for
Smartphones and Tablets
There is growing momentum toward the adoption of NFC technology on
mobile devices. In fact, a recent projection from ABI Research (News - Alert) forecasts
shipments of 285 million NFC-enabled devices in 2013, most of them
smartphones. To address this anticipated demand, SkyCross unveiled its
new, high-performance NFC product offerings, the SkyCross NFC
FlexAntenna and the SkyCross NFC BatteryBack. As with other SkyCross
products based on its iMAT® technology, the new NFC solutions
provide the highest performance while also enabling very thin form
factors. The company is currently shipping samples with several new
Additionally, following its launch of the VersiTune-LTE Antenna with
MatchTuneTM technology at CES 2013, SkyCross revealed its
VersiTune-LTE+Wi-Fi technology platform, which delivers the industry's
first tunable LTE plus Wi-Fi antenna solution for multi-band advanced
LTE devices in a single antenna structure. The addition of Wi-Fi
support, while providing adequate isolation from higher-frequency LTE
signals, is an unprecedented industry feat and enables smartphones and
tablets to be tuned to a broad range of frequencies without the need for
multiple antenna structures. This results in the ability to build a
single model SKU that is smaller and sleeker. SkyCross is currently
working with leading reference design partners to bring this solution
into product form.
SkyCross Innovations Partnership Program (SIPP)
Despite the myriad of advancements in LTE technologies, SkyCross
recognizes the need for the next wave of innovation to come from
integration on the RF front end as well as within systems. As such, the
company will launch the SkyCross Innovation Partnership Program (SIPP)
at Mobile World Congress 2013 to address the demand for innovation of
complete solutions for the RF front end and integrated modules. The
objective of the partnership program is to bring together industry
leaders to improve existing products and deliver new innovations in RFFE
solutions, speaker/antenna modules and NFC, Wi-Fi and GPS antennas to
ensure optimal integration with other components.
"The next wave of performance, size and cost innovation will come from
close partnerships between antenna companies and RFFE and peripheral
partners. We're beginning to work with leaders in the wireless
communications industry to collaborate with us to reset the standard for
wireless broadband front-end solutions," concluded Naskar.
