In general, however, the fractal parts produce “fractal loading” and allow the creation of smaller antennas for a given frequency of use. It is common to achieve practical shrinkage of 50-75 percent by using a fractal design while maintaining very high performance levels.
Fractal antennas also provide many versatile capabilities. They can be extremely small for applications requiring an embedded antenna, or contained in transparent materials to achieve near-invisible larger-scale form factors. The following table highlights the features and benefits of Fractal Antenna Systems’ technology:
|Wideband/multiband||Instantaneous spectrum access||Use one antenna instead of many|
|Compact||More design and use versatility||Lowers cost and enhances desirability|
|Fractal loading||Added inductance and capacitance without components||Enables small, efficient, reliable antennas|
|Fractal ground plane/counterpoise||Smaller, multiband||Greater versatility, new packaging options|
|Frequency independent||Consistent performance over huge frequency range||Fractal solutions open up previously unknown options|
|Low Mutual Coupling||Close packing of antennas||Small arrays with excellent steerability|
|Proven Products||Designed for harshest conditions||In use by military and commercial customers|
|New design space||Powerful solutions possible||Design to requirements, not pick from catalog|
In addition to antennas, we also have similar benefits to our proprietary fractal technology in resonators and other fractal electronic systems.
The features, advantages and benefits listed above apply to Fractal Antenna’s technology in general and indicate a great versatility in meeting the needs of a specific application.
