Starting with design and testing, and clear through into support and manufacturing, learn about the five things you need to look for in a custom antenna manufacturer.
Custom Antenna Design and Manufacturing Capabilities
Laird’s highly experienced team will work directly with you to evaluate antenna characteristics and performance factors critical to developing the optimal antenna solution, including frequency band, gain and pattern shaping, radiation efficiency, and required form factors. Laird has experience designing, testing and manufacturing antennas from low band VHF frequencies to 6 GHz.
Design and Simulation and Prototyping
Laird uses state-of-the-art antenna simulation tools to design and optimize antenna performance for your specific application, addressing challenges such as gain and pattern regulatory restrictions, efficient matching to the radio system, and environmental and mechanical requirements. Laird’s unique Artificial Intelligence Optimizer application ensures that the antenna design is as small as possible for the required performance. Our industrial engineers utilize a full machine shop, complete with 3D printing, for rapid prototyping, allowing you to bring your wireless product to market faster.
Laird operates multiple 3D anechoic antenna test chambers, located globally, that capture accurate, 3D antenna patterns, assuring that your antennas meet or exceed the expected performance requirements.
Low Cost, In-house Manufacturing
For decades, Laird has produced the industry’s highest quality antennas for leading brands at our own manufacturing facilities. With 27 total assembly lines, 39 molding machines, and 9 FIP machines, Laird produces the industry’s most cost-effective, high performance, custom antenna solutions with the fastest time to market.
EMC/FCC Compliance Certification
Laird has its own, independently managed, certified FCC/IC/CE test laboratory. This is truly a game changer that sets Laird apart from the competition. Whether your product needs compliance certification for the U.S., Canadian, or European markets, our in-house testing capabilities save an enormous amount of time, enabling you to bring your wireless solution to market faster and with complete confidence.
