Taoglas USA, Inc. (San Diego, CA) has teamed up with Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (San Diego, CA)[NASDAQ: PSMI] to bring a dynamically tunable LTE antenna solution to the M2M market. The solution contains an embedded surface-mount ceramic PIFA antenna from Taoglas—the Warrior PA.710.A—and Peregrine’s successful PE64102 DuNE Digitally Tunable Capacitor (DTC) on one evaluation board. The solution also:
- Enables M2M devices to reach wide bandwidths and meet requirements for high performance using similar antenna space requirements as 3G/4G systems.
- Has the ability to dynamically change the antenna band “on the fly” to match the cellular band a radio module is using.
- Can be immediately tested via Taoglas’ DTAD.01 evaluation board.
