SkyCross, Inc. Key Developments
SkyCross, Inc. Reveals New Products and Technology Platform
Feb 20 13
To further advance the development of next generation wireless broadband front-end solutions, SkyCross unveiled new offerings for wireless device manufacturers and service providers, including VersiTune-LTE+Wi-Fi, the tunable LTE plus Wi-Fi antenna solution for multi-band communications; a high-performance NFC product line; and the SkyCross Innovation Partnership Program (SIPP). SkyCross will showcase its offerings at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 event, to be held in Barcelona, Spain February 25 - 28, 2013. There is growing momentum toward the adoption of NFC technology on mobile devices. In fact, a recent projection from ABI Research forecasts shipments of 285 million NFC-enabled devices in 2013, most of them smartphones. To address this anticipated demand, SkyCross unveiled its new, high-performance NFC product offerings, the SkyCross NFC FlexAntenna and the SkyCross NFC BatteryBack. As with other SkyCross products based on its iMAT(R) technology, the new NFC solutions provide the performance while also enabling very thin form factors. The company is currently shipping samples with several new projects underway. Additionally, following its launch of the VersiTune-LTE Antenna with MatchTune(TM) technology at CES 2013, SkyCross revealed its VersiTune-LTE+Wi-Fi technology platform, which delivers the industry's first tunable LTE plus Wi-Fi antenna solution for multi-band advanced LTE devices in a single antenna structure. The addition of Wi-Fi support, while providing adequate isolation from higher-frequency LTE signals, is an unprecedented industry feat and enables smartphones and tablets to be tuned to a broad range of frequencies without the need for multiple antenna structures. This results in the ability to build a single model SKU that is smaller and sleeker. SkyCross is currently working with reference design partners to bring this solution into product form.
