GigaAnt Antennas dedicated to wireless technology GigaAnt develops, manufacture and supplies, external and customised antennas dedicated to short - range wireless devices used in, e.g. Bluetooth, Home RF and wireless LAN applications in the 2.4 GHz band. In addition, the company offers a full range of antenna development support and RF testing. Every single radio transceiver needs an antenna, and its design, quality and placement are critical factors for the performance of the entire digital device. This is GigaAnt´s expertise. The company aims to be the natural antenna partner for the adopters of the Bluetooth wireless technology worldwide within the next three years. Since many Bluetooth devices will be produced in relatively small quantities, GigaAnt is investing in the development of standard antennas for the license - free 2.4 GHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) band. Already available today are antennas for three standard platforms. Upon request, all standard antennas can be customised to suit particular applications. For large - volume manufacturers with special needs, GigaAnt has the resources to develop and produce entirely tailor - made solutions.
