CONNECTING CARS OF TOMORROW
THE FIRST CONFORMAL 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.
VEHICLE ENTRY MADE SIMPLE
01 | PHYSICS
BlueKey uses a entirely new technology to determine location—by independently calculating angle and distance. It eliminates any need for triangulation, multiple antenna locations, nor RSSI measurements.
02 | SIMPLICITY
With no need for multiple locations around the car the number of antenna modules goes from 5-8 to one. Parts cost are reduced, constraints on car design vanish, and engineering efforts lessen. Reliability increases as cable runs and connectors disappear.
03 | ACCURACY
By eliminating triangulation and RSSI measurements, accuracy increases significantly. Location data is no longer effected by signal attenuation, created for instance, when a phone is carried in a back pocket.
04 | SYNERGY
While BlueKey can be supplied as a standalone system it can also be integrated into CALPRO. This brings all of a Connected Car's antennas into a single, small, hidden enclosure—saving costs, design time, and real estate/volume in the car.
05 | EASE OF DESIGN-IN
BlueKey can be as small as 3x3x.75 inches and can even be installed inside the vehicle! It can be mounted in the roof above the headliner, behind the rearview mirror, or on the dash or back shelf. In all cases, it can be recessed and flush with the surface. The result is a design-in with no need to change the car’s sheet metal.
