Taoglas, a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, has expanded its portfolio of 5G new radio (NR) antennas for both sub 6GHz and mmWave frequencies at Embedded World, Nuremberg.
The portfolio covers global cellular technology bands with both embedded and external antennas as well as combination antennas including GNSS, Wi-Fi and other protocols used to transmit and receive data.
With more than 16 years of focus on RF and antenna products, Taoglas is the global provider of advanced antenna designs with the most comprehensive offering focused on IoT verticals and their specific design needs. Regardless if it’s a mainstream embedded IoT antenna or a complex combination antennas, Taoglas helps modern enterprises design devices with optimal performance and test devices to ensure first pass carrier certification.
For the 5G NR mmWave frequencies, Taoglas has prototyped and tested numerous patented array subsystem designs with five different chipset OEMs and is helping resolve some of the most complex antenna design scenarios with its strategic IC partners. Its newest mmWave hybrid antenna array subsystem is being displayed at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany.
“The complexity introduced with 5G to improve spectral efficiency and data rates increases substantially with the number of active antennas and antenna arrays needed. Combined with the related issues of beamforming and millimeter-wave RF signal processing, new modulation, power and low-noise amplifier designs, etc., Taoglas’ team of experts is the go-to solution for custom designs to manage that added complexity, produce high performance and cost-effective solutions,” said Ronan Quinlan, co-CEO and founder of Taoglas.
For the 5G sub-6GHz spectrum Taoglas has more than 40 different, off-the-shelf products available today which can be delivered to any location within days. “We’re excited about Taoglas’ continued focus on innovation and serving our IoT customers with high quality designs,” said Tom Busher, vice president, supplier management for Mouser. “Taoglas has been our leading brand of antennas for years and their broad portfolio of next generation products as well as their undisputed expertise, will continue to delight our customers when approaching 5G technology adoption.”
With more than 21,000 IoT customers worldwide and 10 design and test centres globally, Taoglas also helps customers with specific device RF and antenna designs to ensure optimisation and help customers get to market quickly with certification ready designs.
