The antenna firm introduces UWB (ultra-wideband) antennas that allow exact real-time location companies – EEJournal

Eindhoven, Netherlands – March 4, 2021

Antenna Company, a specialist in the design of high-power embedded antennas, today announced a family of ultra-broadband antennas (UWB) that enable high-precision positioning and angle of arrival applications for low-power sensors, anchors, and tags. The antennas support worldwide operation on UWB channel 5 (6.5 GHz) and channel 9 (8 GHz).

UWB technology enables 10cm location accuracy for real-time location services such as access control, asset tracking, peer-to-peer communication and contact tracking. Applications using 2-way distance measurement (TWR), Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA), or Phase Difference of Arrival (PDoA) are also supported.

Antenna Company’s UWB antennas offer high efficiency and omnidirectional coverage. The antennas support industry leading UWB transceivers, including the Qorvo DW3000.

The Antenna Company UWB range of products includes the following options:

  • AC71006 PCB antenna suitable for surface mount mounting on the motherboard
  • AC71016 PCB antenna with SMA connector
  • AC71026 PCB antenna with micro coaxial cable and connector
  • AC71046 PCB double antenna with optimized spacing for PDoA applications

“The UWB antenna products announced today enhance the spatial awareness of UWB systems, support global frequency bands and enable easy integration with OEM devices,” said David Favreau, CEO of the company.

The Antenna Company also announces that it has joined the FiRaTM consortium to promote the adoption of UWB technology.

“We welcome Antenna Company’s membership in the FiRa consortium,” said Charlie Zhang, FiRa consortium chairman and senior vice president of engineering at Samsung Research America. “The UWB ecosystem benefits from the availability of various antenna solutions in order to implement the many use cases made possible by the security functions of UWB.”
