ANTENUM [ an-ten-uM ] noun:
A PLACE WHERE ANTENNA MAGIC HAPPENS
THE FIRST CONFORMAL VEHICLE ANTENNA
01 | CONFORMAL
CALPRO's thin conformal design allows it to be mounted between the roof and the headliner, leaving no visible antenna components outside the car—and no bump inside the car. For cars with all-glass roofs, CALPRO is small enough to be mounted behind the rear view mirror or even in the B-header going under the glass.
02 | ALL-IN-ONE
CALPRO offers all the relevant bands needed for the Connected Car: 3G/4G, 2X2 MIMO, 5G - sub 6, SDARS, WiFi, GNSS, V2X, and Bluetooth. It even offers AM/FM allowing for the elimination of the expensive antenna in the rear windshield. All in one small 5in X 5in package.
03 | PERFORMANCE
CALPRO provides unsurpassed performance and meets, or exceeds the requirements of today’s OEMs. And CALPRO is designed for expansion with a product roadmap that includes a revolutionary single-antenna vehicle entry system (see below) and 5G mm beam steering—all in the same footprint.
04 | SHIPPING TODAY
CALPRO is designed into multiple cars and pre-production units have been shipping since early 2018. Volume proaction from the Company's contract manufacturer begins in late 2019.
TRUE ANALOG TIME-DELAY BEAMFORMING
01 | BENEFITS OF ANALOG
BeamPRO’s analog design eliminates all active RF components, which also
eliminates amplitude and phase distortion. It also means that time delays are fully controllable with essentially infinite variability. The result is true analog beam positioning with no discrete beam steps.
02 | PASSIVE & DIELECTRIC
BeamPro’s passive architecture results in ultra-high efficiency and power handling that is only limited by dielectric breakdown voltage. HOT control is also possible with beam repositioning can done at power, while its dielectric nature
results in a very low noise temperature.
03 | SIMPLICITY - LOW COST
BeamPRO eliminates the need for phase shifters, power dividers, combiners,
and transmit/receive switches. There are no moving parts and the device interfaces directly with the RF chain including power amp and LNA. The result is a higher performing, lighter, more compact, more power efficient and much lower
04 | TIME DOMAIN BEAM FORMING
The totally passive and analog nature of BeamPRO means that beam repositioning speed is not a function of the speed of RF switching components. As such, BeamPRO’s beam repositioning speed can be in low nanoseconds thus allowing for Time Domain Beamforming and increased spectral efficiency.
