Antek Wireless Releases 2.4 Ghz Antenna for Bluetooth Applications

Integral Technologies, Inc., through its subsidiary, Antek Wireless Inc., announced at the Consumer Electronics Show held recently in Las Vegas, Nevada, the release of the first in a series of embedded antennas for Bluetooth(TM) and related short-range home wireless devices.

The Company’s 2.4Ghz antennas are based on a proprietary design that yields performance exceeding virtually any design specifications, in a miniaturized form-factor that can be installed in nearly any device. The TPF-3000 is applicable to a wide variety of short-range consumer applications, such as wireless video and audio equipment, headsets, modems, mobile computers, mobile phones, and other portable handheld devices and conforms to the Bluetooth(TM), IEEE 802.11, and HomeRF protocols.

According to the Bluetooth(TM) consortium (www.bluetooth.com), the Bluetooth(TM) wireless technology is set to revolutionize the personal connectivity market by providing freedom from wired connections. It is a specification for a small-form factor, low-cost radio solution providing links between mobile computers, mobile phones and other portable handheld devices, and connectivity to the internet. The Bluetooth(TM) Special Interest Group (SIG), comprised of leaders in the telecommunications, computing, and network industries, is driving development of the technology and bringing it to market. The Bluetooth(TM) SIG includes promoter companies 3Com, Ericsson, IBM, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia and Toshiba, and 1883 Adopter/Associate member companies.

The Company’s TPF-3000 is a small planar component antenna that can be embedded into almost any electronic device to provide outstanding link performance in the 2.4 to 2.5 GHz band. It is designed for easy implementation into a wide variety of wireless devices, and is readily integrated into printed circuit boards or incorporated into cases, covers, or other components. The antenna is tuned by design and does not require any additional tuning mechanism.

Other 2.4 GHz antennas are in the final development and testing stages and slated for release to the wireless marketplace in the near future. Antek also produces a range of other antennas, for applications such as cordless telephones, wireless Internet access facilitated through laptop and desktop computers, and Personal Digital Assistants. The Company also markets a GPS/LEOS dual-purpose antenna, which combines location identification and data uplink/downlink capabilities.
