Tuesday, October 02, 2007
Technology Reduces Size and Cost of Multiband Wireless Devices
Atlanta, GA – Jacket Micro Devices, Inc. (JMD), a worldwide supplier of integrated RF modules for high performance wireless products, has received notification of issuance of a European patent for "liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) and multilayer polymer-based passive signal processing components for multiband applications."
The patent covers fabrication of organic passive components, including bandpass filters, baluns, diplexers, multiplexers, couplers and combinations of these devices made using LCP and other multilayer polymer substrates. Modules are manufactured using one or more LCP layers with integrated passive components formed directly on the substrate, allowing for better density and performance.
"This technology is key to enabling the design and fabrication of multi-function, multiband devices, such as mobile phones with cellular, WiFi and WiMAX capabilities," said George White, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, JMD. "This patent further strengthens JMD’s intellectual property position related to the passive components needed to empower the next generation of communication devices. As consumers demand more from their mobile devices, this technology will offer new solutions and better meet the challenges of this fast-growing market segment."
The patent, listed under European patent number 1 731 006, is JMD’s sixth patent related to Multi-Layer Organic (MLO) design and technology. It will be validated in Germany and the UK.
