Vice President of Engineering to discuss advancements in proprietary testing and design considerations for the 802.11ac wireless standard
Carlsbad, Calif., September 17, 2012 — Airgain, Inc., an industry leader in smart and embedded antenna technology, announced its participation in the Mobile Antenna Systems Conference being held in Denver, CO on September 18-19, 2012. Bill Bidermann, Airgain Vice President of Engineering, will be presenting the session entitled “Supporting 802.11ac Advancement with Repeatable MIMO Testing and Device Integration” on Wednesday, September 19.
Mr. Bidermann will review key design considerations, measurement methodologies, and Over-the-Air test conditions required to optimize antenna systems for maximum performance in devices using the new 802.11ac wireless standard. The 802.11ac MIMO standard, which can use up to four spatial streams and eight antennas in a single design, significantly improves wireless data and video performance in the home. Utilizing proprietary Over-the-Air testing, antenna design teams can evaluate the performance characteristics of various antenna solutions to refine system designs and ensure predictable and repeatable wireless performance. Mr. Bidermann’s session will also explore performance evaluation metrics, design simulation, and measurement methodologies for improved antenna design and integration.
Mobile Antenna Systems 2012 is a two-day international conference focused on the latest and most important advancements in antenna systems and technology.
