RF System & Antenna Design

The Future is Wireless

The Internet of Things is where the Internet and the physical world meet. Objects, vehicles, buildings and people, to name just a few examples, are equipped with radio and able to communicate. We are increasingly growing accustomed to wireless technology, and we are gradually learning to use it, because we want to monitor and control everything. And the transformation has just begun. 

With extensive experience and unique, holistic expertise in wireless communication, we can help you take the lead in your field, regardless of your product area.

We offer comprehensive knowledge within radio:

  • Hardware Design
  • Software Design
  • RF Custom ASIC Design
  • Antenna Development
  • Radio Protocol Development
  • Regulatory Expertise
  • EMC and Radio Testing

We have a solid, comprehensive expertise, covering everything from the initial stage of development, through design and testing, to a product ready for market launch. Unique know-how that is available to you for many kinds of development projects.

Wireless Standards

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

Bluetooth, and in particular Bluetooth Low Energi (BLE), is one of the cornerstones of modern Internet of Things development. It is a great and versatile 2.4 GHz standard for many IoT applications. Wi-Fi is also a common choice for certain classes of connected devices.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are suitable choices for many applications, but it is always important to make an informed decision on which protocol and frequency band that a particular product should use.

Our expertise and experience enable us to help you implement Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi in different applications. We have experience with many different chipsets, including the Nordic Semi nRF5x series. 

Sub-GHz, NB-IoT, ZigBee, SigFox, LoRa …​

In addition to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, there are a lot of other standards that can be better suited for other applications. We can help you choose the proper standard for your application, or even suggest and develop a custom proprietary protocol when appropriate. 

Examples of possible applicable standards for your application include various Sub-GHz solutions, IEEE 802.15.4 based technologies (ZigBee, Thread, Matter), Z-Wave, SigFox, LoRa / LoRaWAN, cellular connectivity (NB-IoT, LTE, LTE-M, 3G).

Hardware and Software Design

With more than 25 years of experience of advanced electronics development and performance optimization, we offer a complete service for the design of portable low-power and wireless communication both with discrete components and standard IC circuits at board level or completely integrated silicon solutions in the form of ASICs (non-standard tailor-made IC circuits).

By managing our projects from the initial concept to finished product, we deliver time-efficient high-performance solutions. Examples of projects include

  • The design of RF circuits with optimum performance for your product, often including small specially designed built-in customized antennas
  • Compact board solutions with foldable, flexible circuit boards containing complex embedded systems
  • ASIC solutions with unique functionality and performance combined with a very low production cost for high volumes these can give your products unique customer benefits, a market-leading position and increased profits

Regulatory Expertise

In order to launch a product on the market, a number of different requirements need to be met. These can vary from one country to another. To get a product approved can often be a complex and time-consuming process. For us, however, its just business as usual.

Our Test Center has the expertise, equipment and procedures required to guide you around any pitfalls we measure and verify that your products really do fulfil all requirements for all markets.

Protocol Development

When your application requires, we develop customized protocols fully optimized to your specific requirements, and without unnecessary overhead. This results in optimum performance, robust transmission, and a long battery life. When general standards simply dont offer the best solution, we are happy to help you solve your challenges.

Better range, lower power consumption and higher security are just a few of the many challenges we are used to solve with our protocols. Standard protocols, such as Bluetooth, always have limitations due to the requirements set by a large variety of applications and application areas, which inevitably lead to compromises in the protocols architecture and design.

Custom and Standard Antennas

When size is important, and performance has to be excellent, the antenna team at our sister company RangeAnt springs into action. One of the major challenges today is wireless communications for the Internet of Things. Portable, often very small, devices demand micro antennas that still provide superior performance and stability. Our Test Center can offer a unique holistic process for antennas from design to verification and measurement.
