Red Herring recognises impact of Fractus’ antenna technology on wireless industry

(PresseBox) (Barcelona, ) Red Herring has recognised Fractus, the fractal antenna technology pioneer, as one of the most innovative technology companies of 2006 with its inclusion in the top 100 private companies in Europe and the Middle East, announced today. This follows high profile Fractus contract wins in 2006, significant patent awards and the release of a revolutionary ‘plug-and-play’ short-range wireless product.

“This has been a landmark year for Fractus as the wireless industry has recognised our IP and capacity to deliver with a series of major contracts” said Ruben Bonet, CEO, Fractus. “We now encompass the entire wireless marketplace: amongst others Siemens sells our base station antennas, Samsung uses our handset antennas and Richardson Electronics distributes our short-range antennas into more than 73 countries worldwide.”

In the first quarter of 2006 Fractus announced its antennas have been selected for a variety of Samsung tri-band handsets that incorporate WLAN; Grundig’s flagship 3G i-Mode handset and Sagem’s new my300X ultra-slim mobile phone range. In March, Fractus was awarded the world’s first patent for multilevel antennas which represents a major step for the provision of increased frequency bands in a smaller physical space. Fractus’ patent portfolio currently encompasses 42 patent families and in total some 199 national patents covering Europe, US, China, Japan, Korea, India, Russia, Brazil and Mexico.

At 3GSM Fractus unveiled a revolutionary wireless innovation, FWSiP (Full Wireless System in Package), a ‘plug-and-play’ single package complete wireless solution which means that any device can be easily and cost-effectively wireless-enabled without the need for the manufacturer to have any RF expertise.

Fractus’ short-range wireless have been adopted by leading semiconductor manufacturers such as Atheros Communications, CSR and Philips Semiconductors.

Fractus will further consolidate its position in 2006 with expansion plans in all markets, particularly in China through customers such as Haier, NEC and Intel.
