SkyCross announced that it developed the first embedded antenna for simultaneous coverage of the 800-MHz cellular, 1,575-MHz GPS, 1,900-MHz PCS, and 2,450-MHz WLAN frequency bands for Enhanced 911 (E-911) wireless handset applications. The company integrated mobile telephone, wireless data, and GPS receiver functions into a single device. The antenna also provides coverage in the 2.45-GHz frequency band used by Bluetooth wireless networking standards. The antenna frees designers from contending with the cost and challenge of incorporating more than one antenna into a single device, according to Alan Haase, the CEO of SkyCross.
