Webinar Features NI AWR Software for Antenna Matching-Circuit Design for IoT Devices - RF CafeOverview: This webinar presents a new technology and design methodology enabling one antenna component from Fractus Antennas which fits all IoT designs, based on a new generation of tiny components named antenna boosters. To address IoT applications, this miniature, multipurpose and surface-mount (SMT) component fits seamlessly in an electronic printed circuit board the same way any other electronic component does, replacing conventional customized antennas for wireless applications. The miniature booster is also multiband, so it easily works to any standard or frequency (NB-IoT, LoRa, Sigfox, WiFi, GPS, 4G, 3G…), even multiple standards simultaneously.

The input impedance of these devices can be designed for any frequency, aided by the support of impedance matching network synthesis and RF circuit simulation from NI AWR software. They can be assembled in production on the main PCB using conventional pick-and-place machinery, resulting in a lower production cost and improved quality and reliability. Being much smaller than the operating wavelength, the antenna boosters still provide full functional multiband wireless connectivity to smartphones and IoT devices.

Presenter Bio: Dr. Jaume Anguera is the Chief Scientist at Fractus Antennas, the lead inventor of the Virtual Antenna™ technology and an Associate Prof. at Univ. Ramon LLull, Barcelona, Spain. R&D Manager at Fractus (‘99-‘17). He worked in South Korea designing antennas for the mobile industry (e.g. Samsung and LG). Inventor +140 granted patents many of them licensed. Author +220 scientific papers. Twenty years of experience in industrial antenna design for wireless devices. 


The NI AWR Design Environment platform will be featured in an upcoming webinar presenting a new technology and design methodology that uses the impedance-matching network synthesis capabilities within Microwave Office circuit design software to design the input impedance for a new generation of Virtual Antenna™ tiny antenna booster components from Fractus Antennas. This antenna technology enables a single antenna component to fit seamlessly in a printed circuit board (PCB), replacing conventional customized antennas for internet of things (IoT) and other wireless applications.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
