Embedded World is a big show, so in a slightly different video, the ipXchange team decided to interview an industry giant, TE Connectivity, to get some insights on where the world of antennas and wireless technology is heading. This seemed like a useful opportunity given that IoT is a topic at the forefront of many design engineers’ minds.
In this insightful interview, John talks us through LDS antennas, a custom 3D antenna solution that he regarded as a tried-and-tested technology but one that enables disruptive innovation, based on the creativity of the engineer rather than the technology itself.
Following from this, John gives us a thorough rundown of the off-the-shelf antenna options offered by TE Connectivity before outlining the current trends and expectations for wireless technology over the next few years. This interview is certainly an interesting watch if you want to future-proof your devices for upcoming wireless standards. Comment any questions below, and we’ll see if we can get some answers from this industry giant.
