Antenna Optimization Software From Optenni Now Supports WiSpry Tunable Antenna Components


WiSpry, Inc., the leader in high-performance tunable radio frequency (RF) semiconductor products for the wireless industry, today announced that antenna optimization software from Optenni Ltd. now supports WiSpry tunable antenna components. The Optenni Lab™ 3.0 matching circuit design software optimizes frequency tunable matching circuits, supporting the use of tunable RF-MEMS capacitors from WiSpry.

The new software, designed by Finnish software company Optenni Ltd., addresses several of the challenges faced by mobile antenna and RF designers. Tunable matching circuits enable devices to cover a large number of the LTE frequency bands – a requirement in today’s ever-expanding frequency landscape. However, optimizing these tunable matching circuits is a challenging complex design problem. The Optenni Lab™ 3.0 software provides a new, easy-to-use solution for the design of tunable matching circuits, and is compatible with WiSpry’s tunable MEMS capacitor models.

“We are very excited about the availability of this new software from Optenni,” said Jeff Hilbert, CEO of WiSpry, Inc. “This design resource, optimized for use with WiSpry’s capacitors, will ease design challenges and significantly improve our customers’ time-to-market.”

“We are very happy to work closely with WiSpry, a recognized market leader in tunable MEMS capacitors, to provide a new workflow for tunable matching circuits,” said Dr. Jussi Rahola, CEO of Optenni Ltd. “Together with WiSpry, we are able to provide the customers a combination of low-loss tunable elements and an easy-to-use design workflow.”

In addition to adding new antenna optimization software, WiSpry is continuing the expansion of its design ecosystem to provide additional customer resources for Tunable RF designs.
