Patch Antennas

We are able to identify critical issues such as the board layout, ground plane size, mounting methods and port measurement that influence the efficiency of your antenna. We’ll look at the polarization and radiation patterns, gain, impedance matching and frequency tolerance to determine the ideal patch for your design.

In addition, we have an on-site anechoic chamber to validate performance. Our flexible manufacturing and testing processes allow us to easily accommodate your custom specifications.
