Ethertronics Ships Standard Embedded Antenna For Short-Range Wireless Computing Applications
Reduced Development Costs And Time To Market Mean Increased Profits For OEMs

    SAN DIEGO, CA - (ots) - Ethertronics, a developer and manufacturer
of high performance embedded antennas for personal and industrial
wireless devices, today announced it has begun volume shipping of its
standard, "off-the-shelf" embedded antenna for the 2.400-2.485 GHz
frequency band. The JI(tm) Standard Embedded Antenna requires
virtually no product integration effort, while delivering 50% more
efficiency than competitive embedded antennas. Designed for
short-range wireless computing networks in the U.S. and abroad, such
as 802.11b, Bluetooth, HomeRF, HyperLAN and Wi-Fi, the JI antenna can
significantly minimize product development time and costs for
original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
    With its superior isolation properties and self-contained ground
plane, the JI antenna may be mounted in close proximity to existing
components and shields. These features reduce integration efforts and
make the JI antenna an attractive choice for modifying existing
product designs with minimal impact. Other key advantages include:
    -  Accelerated Time to Market - As a standard embedded antenna,
         requiring no customization, OEMs can shave weeks or even months
         off their product development timelines.
    -  Low Cost Manufacturing - With minimal upfront development &
         tooling costs, OEMs can lower a product's bill of materials
         cost by selecting the JI antenna over custom embedded antenna
    -  Integration Flexibility - OEMs can source the JI antenna for
         use with multiple product enclosures, leveraging volume
         pricing and integration flexibility without sacrificing
         performance or efficiency.
    Ethertronics is shipping its JI antenna for use in wireless local
area networking (WLAN) applications and industrial remote monitoring
    "Typical embedded antennas require extensive product integration,
as they must be customized for a specific product enclosure,"
explained Bruce Gray, CEO of Ethertronics. "Our JI antenna offers
simple, drop-in wireless connectivity to streamline the development
process. It's a very cost-effective and time-saving solution that
enables device manufacturers to bring their wireless products to
market quickly."
    The JI antenna features Ethertronics' patented antenna "shaping
technology" which controls and re-directs the near-field
electromagnetic pattern of the antenna's RF signal. This "shaping
technology" delivers optimal antenna performance by improving signal
strength and voice/data quality inside buildings, in urban canyons
and in fringe network coverage areas.
    The JI antenna measures 25.4 x 7.6 x 6 mm and weighs less than 1
gram. For a detailed product specification sheet or to place an
