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).

The Pain

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 Solution

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.


CompetitorHow we are different
Old printed antennasCheap, no expensive RF antenna boards
Can be integrated in the casing/cover
Great performance
No metal loss, wider band
