Taoglas rises up in the Drone / UAV solutions market

Taoglas launches a UAV / Drone antenna and RF products and solutions division tailored to the needs of the growing sector

Enniscorthy, Ireland, 07 July, 2016 – Over the past 12 months the UAV market has seen an explosion of interest from the consumer and commercial sectors. While military applications continue to hold the lion’s share in terms of spend, new trends indicate a shift towards consumer and commercial sectors. New and innovative use cases continue to emerge, including applications in agriculture, firefighting, mining, traffic monitoring, search and rescue, utilities, media reporting, and even the film industry.

While the landscape continues to evolve, the functionality and requirements within the UAV industry remain constant. Antennas must be lightweight, omni-directional, and aerodynamically sound with minimal power consumption, high efficiency and moderate gain. Like the drone, the antennas need to be able to withstand exposure from the elements – extreme temperatures, hail, UV degradation and resistance to impact. David Connolly of Taoglas, who was instrumental in the development of Taoglas UAV explained: Continue reading…

FXUB65 – A versatile ultra-wideband antenna

Ultra Wideband LTE Antenna Increases Versatility, Cuts Size and Costs

Most Compact Form Factor Ultra Wideband Antenna Covering 3G and 4G bands from 700-2700MHz

Enniscorthy, Ireland and San Diego, Calif,– Taoglas, a leading provider of IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M (Machine to Machine) antenna solutions, today launched the patent pending FXUB65 Minima compact ultra wideband flexible LTE antenna covering 2G, 3G and 4G bands in the 700-2700MHz spectrum for wireless device designers in the IoT industry.

“The challenge that designers have been facing of creating enough space for an antenna that gets 100 channels or more within the confines of a wireless device hasn’t been successfully addressed until now,” said Jason Dorsey, Senior Antenna Engineer at Taoglas. He added, “Including the lower 700MHz band generally warrants a large antenna. We have succeeded in making a smaller antenna without performance compromises.”
