SkyCross Announces New WiFi Antenna Line and Expands WiFi Distribution Network
Aug 27 14
SkyCross announced a new line of WiFi antenna solutions. The company also announced an enhanced distribution network for its WiFi product lines. SkyCross’s new WiFi solutions enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) to achieve a full range of solutions for their needs, including custom high-performance solutions; value offerings, where performance and low cost are needed; and efficiency solutions, where cost is minimized for the most price competitive environments and spatially-constrained platforms. OEMs and ODMs include SkyCross WiFi antennas in products ranging from wireless routers, set top boxes, gaming platforms, televisions, notebooks, tablets, hotspots, smartphones to other WiFi-enabled products. For new high-performance solutions, SkyCross’s new 802.11ac antennas, either cabled or board mounted and either low-profile or standard profile, achieve among faster data rates available when paired with chipsets. In addition to solutions for traditional MIMO configurations, SkyCross announces the introduction of 8x8 solutions that further augment data rates and enhance throughput. For new value offerings, SkyCross announces its cornerstone products, the SkyCross TiFighter2.4 TM and TiFighter5 TM, which address both 2.4GHz and 5GHz needs. SkyCross TiFighter antennas provide superior WiFi and 802.11ac performance, a low-cost solution for 802.11ac antennas, and an innovative architecture and design for integrated design needs. Both solutions are available for evaluation as part of the SkyCross TiFighter Evaluation Kit. For new efficiency solutions, the company announces the application of its patented iMAT technology to WiFi, enabling WiFi antennas to be placed in close proximity to one another. Eliminating spatial separation reduces antenna cost as well as overall system cost by reducing enclosure size for higher-order MIMO, including 3x3, 4x4, as well as 8x8 cost and system size savings.
SkyCross Introduces 4X4 MIMO Solution for Smartphones Achieving New LTE-A Speed Record of Almost 600Mbps
Feb 23 14
SkyCross announced a new line of LTE antennas that achieve data rates approaching 600Mbps, more than 3X faster than the throughput of LTE mobile networks and devices. This breakthrough sets new throughput records while employing commercially-available products and technology. Previously thought of as unachievable, SkyCross's Dual iMAT technology allows four or more antennas to compactly fit into a smartphone form factor, while maintaining sufficient isolation to enable 4X4 MIMO (multiple input multiple output). The classic technique of separating antennas spatially (i.e., putting distance between antennas) has prohibited this given the limited size of mobile handsets. SkyCross's Dual iMAT technology achieves this performance breakthrough through a combination of 4X4 MIMO and dual band carrier aggregation. Whether for a single band of LTE, two bands of LTE with carrier aggregation, or even recently announced 3-band carrier aggregation, 4X4 MIMO can significantly enhance performance by almost 2X.
