AntennaWare to Launch an Innovative Range of UWB Antennas for Wearables at Embedded World 24


AntennaWare to Launch an Innovative Range of UWB Antennas for Wearables at Embedded World 24

AntennaWare is a UK-based company that designs antennas for wearable applications. It has over 25 years of academic R&D experience in wearable antenna design and body-centric EM propagation, with a strong focus on real-world performance and measurement verification. At Embedded World 2024, the company will showcase and introduce its BodyWave™ antennas – the first commercially available antenna specifically designed to overcome the unique reliability challenges experienced by wireless wearables.

The BodyWave™ antennas offer unprecedented performance at a range of frequencies including 1.9 GHz, 2.4 GHz and UWB. Each of the three new UWB antennas have been developed in direct response to the market’s growing interest in UWB as a wireless technology and complement the existing 6.5 GHz BodyWave™ UWB Channel 5 antenna. Included in the new range is the most compact BodyWave™ antenna the company has developed to date, with a size of just 5 x 5 x 2 mm, making BodyWave™ antennas suitable for much smaller form factors than was previously the case.

Commenting on these latest additions to the BodyWave antenna range, AntennaWare CEO Dr Gareth Conway explained, “As the world moves up in frequency due to congestion in the 2.4 GHz frequency, the problem of body blocking becomes even greater for any wireless device placed close to or on the body, which only increases the requirement for the unique properties of BodyWave™ antennas.”

The BodyWave™ UWB antenna range includes:

  • 6.5 GHz UWB Channel 5 antenna
  • 6.5 GHz & 8 GHz BodyWave™ UWB Channel 5 & 9 antenna
  • 6.5 GHz – 8 GHz BodyWave™ UWB Channel 5-9 antenna
  • 8 GHz BodyWave™ Channel 9 antenna – the most compact BodyWave™ antenna to date with dimensions of 5 x 5 x 2 mm (Bespoke form factors are also possible)

Technology Demos across Frequencies and Applications

In addition to the UWB antenna range, visit the AntennaWare booth where the team will be showing a series of live demos at Embedded World 2024, highlighting the performance and reliability gains achieved by BodyWave™ antennas. The demos will span RF frequencies and a range of wireless wearable applications covering audio, healthcare, sports wearables and industrial IoT asset tracking.
