What We Do
Polytenna develops innovative polymer antennas for the exponentially growing mm-wave frequency markets (20-80 GHz 5G, 60 GHz WiFi, 70-80 GHz automotive sensors).
At mm-wave frequencies the old metal printed antennas have high power loss and poor performance. They also need expensive materials for fabrication. The old antenna technologies are not suitable for the mm-wave consumer market.
Our “plastic antennas” outperform printed metal antennas at these high frequencies. Polytennas are also cheap to fabricate in high volumes using plastic molding techniques. They are ideal for the next gen devices.
|Competitor||How we are different|
|Old printed antennas||Cheap, no expensive RF antenna boards|
|Can be integrated in the casing/cover|
|No metal loss, wider band|
