KEY BENEFITS
DESIGN ADVANTAGES
Ethertronics’ Prestta series of Isolated Magnetic Dipole™ (IMD) embedded antennas address the challenges facing today’s product designers. IMD’s high
performance and isolation characteristics offer better connectivity and minimal interference. Prestta
antennas can be used in a variety of applications including:
 Handsets
 Tablets
 Femtocells
 M2M
 Automatic Meter Reading
 Healthcare
 Point of Sale
 Tracking
TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGES
Stays in Tune
IMD antenna technology
provides superior RF field
containment, resulting in
less interaction with
surrounding components.
Ethertronics IMD antennas
resist de-tuning;
providing a robust radio
link regardless of the
usage position.
Prestta antennas use patented IMD technology in a
stamped metal configuration to provide high
performance. IMD antennas requires a smaller design
keep-out area, carry lower program development risk
which yields a quicker time-to-market, without
sacrificing RF performance.
Reduced Costs and Time-to-Market
 Standard antenna eliminates design fees and cycle
time associated with a custom solution; getting products to market faster.
Greater Flexibility with Unique Form Factors
 Ethertronics’ IMD technology helps you deliver more
advanced ergonomic designs without adverse impact
on product performance.
 SMD mountable design enables faster and lower cost
manufacturing.
RoHS Compliant
 Ethertronics’ antennas are fully compliant with the
European RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.
END USER ADVANTAGES
Unique Form Factors Support Advanced
Industrial Designs
 Smaller, more efficient IMD embedded antennas break
through restrictive design rules and provide new freedom in component placement.
Superior Range
 Better antenna function means longer range and greater sensitivity to critically precise signals—delivering
greater customer satisfaction while building brand loyalty.
SERVICE AND SUPPORT
Extensive RF Experience
 Our Prestta antennas are supported by documentation,
and when needed, by the expertise of RF engineers
who have integrated hundreds of antenna designs into
wireless devices.
Global Operations & Design Support
 Ethertronics’ global operations supports an integrated
network of design centers that can take projects from
concept to production.
