SkyCross Selected as 2013 ACE Awards Finalist

SkyCross, a global designer and manufacturer of advanced antenna and RF solution and industry leader in tunable antenna technology for 4G LTE mobile devices, today announced that its VersiTune-LTE Tunable Antenna Module has been selected as a finalist in the Ultimate Products - Wireless/RF category in the 2013 ACE (Annual Creativity in Electronics) Awards.

“SkyCross is honored to have our VersiTune-LTE Tunable Antenna Module recognized as the only antenna solution finalist in the Ultimate Products - Wireless/RF category of the ACE Awards,” said Ben Naskar, CEO and chairman of SkyCross. “This prestigious accolade underscores the significance and potential of our advanced tuning solutions and fuels SkyCross’ commitment to continued innovation and leadership within the RF industry.”

Presented by EE Times and EDN, the ACE Awards recognize and honor people and companies who have made a significant electronics industry contribution through creativity, excellence, service and initiative. Winners will be announced at the ACE Awards cocktail reception Tuesday, April 23 at the Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose, Calif. during DESIGN West.

"The finalists represent the execution of forward-thinking technologies, tools and creativity that will enable the next generation of systems to meet applications ranging from mobile to automotive and medical. All illustrate the increasing influence that electronics and embedded design professionals have on today's culture," said Patrick Mannion, Brand Director, EDN, UBM Tech.

An esteemed panel of EE Times and EDN editors and independent judges selected the top five best new electronic devices, components or subsystems that debuted in 2012 in their respective categories.

SkyCross’ VersiTune-LTE Tunable Antenna Module is the first and only commercially-available single antenna module to support MIMO diversity and carrier aggregation. Using SkyCross’ advanced iMAT® and MatchTune technologies, this unprecedented product enables a single antenna structure to tune to 12 or more transmit and receive bands of a carrier’s choosing, while also mitigating head/hand effects and providing optimized MIMO functionality. Each feed accesses the antenna as if it consisted of multiple antennas, each with high isolation, low correlation, and high per-feed antenna efficiency, resulting in enhanced antenna gain, receiver sensitivity, network capacity and overall device performance.

The VersiTune-LTE Antenna Module not only consumes less space than traditional solutions with multiple main and diversity antennas, allowing for thinner, lighter devices; it is also more cost effective and delivers improved call quality, including better international roaming capabilities, high-speed throughput and high-performance RF across any chosen band.
