Fractus is releasing new technology, with the first of its Virtual AntennaTM products. The Fractus® Virtual AntennaTM solution provides a way not only to operate current mobile bands but also to upgrade the bands for cellular platforms to LTE and follow-up generations. Additionally, this ultra-compact antenna solution can be standardized across multiple devices and platforms.

“We are very enthusiastic about this new concept”

“The new Virtual AntennaTM technology is a consequence of multiple Research and Innovation projects in the R&D Department,” said Dr. Jaume Anguera, R&D Manager at Fractus. “The new technology will be appealing for the new generation of Smartphones and Wireless Devices.”

The mXTENDTM Antenna Booster brings to market a new generation of antenna solutions based on the Virtual AntennaTM technology. The technology is mainly focused on providing miniature and standard off-the-shelf components to replace conventional multiband antenna solutions.

“This solution eliminates the need to include large customized antenna,” said Dr. Aurora Andújar, an R&D engineer at Fractus. “It frees space to enable emergent technologies such as MIMO, as well as to integrate other handset components, services and functionalities.”

The first Fractus mXTENDTM Antenna Booster (product FR01-S4-250) has been specifically designed for providing multiband performance in wireless devices (mobile devices in particular). Measuring only 5mm x 5mm x 5mm, it enables worldwide coverage by allowing operation in the communication standards GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800/DCS, GSM1900/PCS, UMTS, LTE2100, LTE2300 and LTE2500.

“We are very enthusiastic about this new concept,” stated Josep Portabella, products and services director at Fractus. “The simplicity of the Virtual AntennaTM technology will help our customers to significantly accelerate their time to market in terms of design and manufacturing.”
