By 2025, Over 7 Billion Antennas will be shipped into IoT Devices, Creating challenges for OEMs and Expanding Opportunities for Annnana Vendors

The device will be shipped for IoT devices by 2025 - nearly threefold of what it is today. The success of new products and evolution of existing devices requiring multiple radios, smaller form factors and greater device breadth, OEMs are increasingly challenged at the design phase and when bringing their products to market. The global tech market advisory firm rethinks IoT devices in Virtual Antenna Technology, a new whitepaper, Rethinking IOS devices with Virtualantena Technologies, (Rethink The IOC) is ABI Research has launched a research project. , highlights the challenges created by the small, yet critical antenna component and the real-life impact it has on all IoT product design and certification processes.

The antenna is one of the most common causes of failure when creating new IoT products, says Tancred Taylor, Interdisciplinary Research Analyst. The reality is much different to any antenna. "The best approach to a high performance antenna is to provide high quality in the application it serves, and for the network and the spectrum it operates on. The real-life operation performance has many consequences, such as proximity to the surface or the human body, interference from surrounding waves in RF-congested environments, obstruction from vehicular traffic or other objects, or detuning by If the antenna isn't designed and integrated properly at the beginning of the process, an OEM will likely experience higher costs, delays and even product failures at certification stage.

Antetellers have to work harder with their customers to limit the potential pitfalls of the process. The antenna is rarely seen as a standalone component, but as part of broader system. Offering software and services on top of the antenna component itself presents significant emerging opportunities for traditional component vendors. RF engineering gains complexity from expanding network standards and access to radio spectrum.

Ignion, a Spanish company that created the Virtual Antenna, is able to manufacture an antenna with varying approaches to its rivals, which has shipped 25 million units through 2020. These wideband antennas are available in all frequencies between 698 and 500MHz and are controlled only by matching networks. This technology shifts the focus of antenna integration from the component itself to the comparatively simple matching network, which can drastically reduce complexity, the selection of the antenna and the time of integration for IoT devices. Ignion's technology addresses the critical concerns of OEMs about RF design in IoT products.

"IoT designs are evolving to include more radios, to miniaturize devices and to reduce power consumption. There are a large number of OEMs operating in the space, many getting to large volumes while many others experiment with smaller-scale products. This means that the RF design is a key skill, and it makes it easier for scalable antenna vendors to understand how their customers interact. This whitepaper highlights the efforts of one vendor to look at the market differently," Taylor concludes.
