22 May '15
Researchers at the Voronezh State University (VSU) in Central Russia have teamed up with their colleagues from the Moscow-based Kotelnikov Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics and China’s Jinan University, based in the city of Guangzhou, to develop next gen fractal chip-antennas for various frequency ranges, the VSU website announced.
According to Grigory Uskov, an associate professor at VSU’s Department of Physics who participated in the project, their new product is an antenna, a small chip to be placed on an IC to make WiFi modules that connect a portable gadget up to the Internet. The Voronezh-originating antennas cover a variety of ranges, including GSM, 3G, and 4G, the scientist said.
VSU’s industrial partner in China, electronics maker Chuangtian Electronic CO, has the capacity to set up and launch serial production of the new chip-antennas, Mr. Uskov added.
