SkyCross Launches VersiTune-LTE Antenna With New MatchTune Technology; Becomes First Active Antenna Solution to Support both LTE and Carrier Aggregation Requirements for Operators
FREMONT, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Mobile device developers eager to boost the performance and LTE (News - Alert)
capabilities of their products, while concurrently reducing form factor
and manufacturing costs, now have a triple crown solution available from
SkyCross' (News - Alert) new VersiTune-LTE Antenna. SkyCross,
the leading global developer of advanced antenna and RF solutions,
developed the VersiTune-LTE Antenna to achieve both operators' LTE and
carrier aggregation requirements. SkyCross' VersiTune-LTE Antennas will
be showcased during the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)), to be held
in Las Vegas, January 8-11, 2013.
The launch of VersiTune-LTE represents the very first active tuning
antenna product to be commercially brought to market that
supports LTE and carrier aggregation; no other active tuning technology
can tout this performance today. The product will be deployed by major
handset manufacturers throughout 2013 - 2014.
"Addressing antenna capabilities is critical for device designers and
manufacturers to meet conflicting consumer demands of improved
performance, similar or lower cost devices, and ever-shrinking form
factors," said Ben
Naskar CEO and chairman of SkyCross. "To date, customers have
been hesitant to integrate actively tuned antennas due to questions
about market need versus performance and cost. With LTE and carrier
aggregation coming upon us, the time has come to move to actively tuned
solutions. SkyCross' three technology innovations enable us to answer
developers' hesitancy and satisfy consumer demands around performance,
cost and compact form factors."
This new offering from SkyCross is built upon its innovative, patented
and award-winning iMAT®, VersiTune-LTE™ and MatchTune™
(Isolated Mode Antenna Technology) is a single antenna structure
that acts like multiple antennas through the use of multiple feedpoints.
Each feedpoint accesses the single antenna as if it were two or more
independent antennas, which are highly isolated from each other.
Developers can combine the iMAT design with other antenna requirements
to form a multi-band, multi-protocol antenna module. The core value of
this technology is that it allows for more compact designs, compared to
traditional use of multiple space-consuming antennas.
delivers an advanced tunable antenna solution for multi-band 4G LTE
devices in a single iMAT antenna structure. VersiTune technology enables
SkyCross to actively tune an antenna from frequency band to frequency
band quite accurately so that many bands can be satisfied by a single
structure. It offers broader performance across 12 or more operating
frequency bands, with optimized MIMO performance for 4G LTE in smart
phones, tablets and USB modems in one-quarter the size of conventional
MatchTune enables a single antenna structure to uniquely fine
tune within a given LTE frequency band, which both enhances performance
for a given frequency or for multiple simultaneous frequencies when
employing carrier aggregation. It also provides the core capability for
effectively resolving head/hand effect.
The combination of all three technologies allows for cost and space
reduction from the iMAT technology's integration of multiple antennas,
while retaining performance across a broad range of bands by employing
coarse and fine tuning band to band.
SkyCross delivers not only its technologies and products, but also
offers a comprehensive turnkey approach including design, scalable
manufacture and testing. SkyCross' VersiTune-LTE Antennas are designed
not only for best performance, but can also be integrated into a
standard module for deployment across multiple SKUs or optimized for a
specific phone. SkyCross brings its longstanding experience and
high-volume manufacturing capability to VersiTune-LTE's launch as well,
providing capability to scale production of VersiTune-LTE for worldwide
deployments of mobile devices in mass market quantities.
