Wireless communications systems and devices

Integrating wireless communications has been shown to improve product functionality. But with many technologies on offer, choosing the right system can have a major impact on the success of the product.

Wireless technology

Constant evolution

The proliferation of smart phones and the nascent Internet of Things is driving constant evolution. The wireless technology landscape is continuously developing with new solutions. Applications include data logging, smart metering, health monitoring, environmental monitoring and wearable technologies.

End users demand solutions that provide tangible benefits with a very short learning curve. It’s therefore vital that¬†manufacturers choose and implement the right technologies in a way that best meets the user’s needs.

However, as wireless technologies become more complex, the implementation becomes ever more challenging.

A complete wireless system also needs to provide useful battery life or include energy harvesting to recharge the battery from the surrounding environment. Meanwhile, the implementation of the antenna system can severely degrade the user experience even when the product appears to work well at other times.
