Smart Antenna Technologies attracts further investment

Smart Antenna Technologies (SAT) has announced the completion of a further investment round lead by Mercia Fund Management.

SAT provides a single-antenna technology enabling mobile device manufacturers to replace all existing antennae with a single multi-band antenna, the performance of which is claimed to match that of the separate antennae at their specified frequencies.

The investment will fund product development and sales and marketing activities.

Since 2013 SAT has completed a demonstrator of the technology and is working with consumer electronic suppliers in each of its key market sectors; mobile phone, laptops and tablets, in-car electronics and micro-base stations.

SAT expects to convert these engagements into ‘design wins’ for inclusion in future products over the next 12 months.
