Ground plane independent designs
Introducing a new line of high performance quadrifilar antennas based on proprietary and patented Maxtena HeliCore technology. Our patented technology provides an extremely flexible and low cost platform for designing different antenna products where pattern, polarization purity, efficiency and size are the driving design parameters.
Technology you can depend on
Patented HeliCore technology uses air as dielectric core and minimizes typical losses associated with ceramic materials. HeliCore technology is pushing antenna limits in terms of axial ratio, bandwidth, and pattern stability. The design itself allows easy active circuitry and filtering addition due to the independent nature of the feed and antenna structure.
HeliCore technology addresses widely known issues associated with ceramic materials and ceramic antenna manufacturing processes which create wide dielectric constant variations due to material, temperature, and humidity variations. This is reflected in reduced performance of ceramic antennas and low manufacturing yields.
Helicore technology allows us to have a stable and high yield manufacturing process because the antenna core uses air as dielectric. In fact, our current manufacturing yield is greater than 98.9%.
Key advantages and features
The technology can be used for GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO applications where size, axial ratio purity, and efficiency are very important. HeliCore technology will improve the battery life of your device as well as accuracy. This technology can also be used for indoor or outdoor directional Wi-Fi applications where multipath rejection is required. Studies indicate that one can achieve higher data-rates using circularly polarized antennas.
