TE Connectivity (TE) has announced an entire line of antennas targeting IoT. The antennas are geared towards the varied and often unique designs of IoT projects and systems. There is the standard antenna, premade and ready to mass ship, and the custom antenna made to specifications or modified standard versions.
The teams at TE have been working on multi-antenna scenarios in small form-factor devices and working on some of the more complex design issues in multi-radio environments.
The entire TE antenna portfolio includes both standard and custom solutions in these categories: Cellular, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/Zigbee, LPWAN, RF accessories, GNSS, and ISM. TE does look to work with the customer base to solve client issues, and challenges for their connectivity projects.
Some of the features and benefits of TE antennas are reliability through high performance and isolations. The antennas are optimized for throughput with minimal losses to create high efficiency. There is in-house testing and validation in state-of-the-art laboratories located throughout the world. And TE has fully integrated manufacturing capabilities.
Some of the many applications that TE antennas are targeting are Security, indoor and outdoor lighting, home and large building automation, smart metering, and energy management. The product lines have a deep focus on Industrial IoT, predictive maintenance, and health and medical devices. Some of the wide-ranging applications also include telematics, OBD, asset tracking, audio and entertainment, and in the broadest spectrum new IoT enhanced automation in agriculture.
TE Connectivity is developing across many wireless protocols.
