“For this device we needed a high performance and highly sensitivity multiband band cellular antenna that would fit into the credit card sized device that we have. I didn’t want to use an antenna with unreliable connectors, I needed to embed the antenna right on a PCB and I needed better performance than you’d typically get from any ceramic loaded antenna in the market place.”
Joe Jesson looked at Taoglas’ PA-25a antenna. The PA-25a is the first six-band surface mount antenna (SMT) that delivers efficiency of 50% on all worldwide cellular bands including: 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 and 2100 Mhz for GSM, CDMA, DCS, PCS, WCDMA, UMTS, HSDPA, GPRS and EDGE. Using the PA-25a and working with Taoglas RF engineers, XactTrack achieved TRP/TIS requirements and Radiated Spurious Emissions regulations to get PTCRB approval on their device. These standards are critical to business success in the North American wireless market.
