Taoglas Opens Antenna & RF Design Center in San Diego

Taoglas has opened a fully-equipped, design and test center in San Diego for companies building wirelessly-connected M2M and IoT applications.

The new Taoglas IoTx Center offers two CTIA-calibrated anechoic chambers, and includes a custom antenna and RF cable assembly facility, expanded development and office space as well as a well-equipped, sound-proofed customer lounge area. Taoglas said it plans to increase its San Diego staff by 50% this year and expects to double that in the next three years.

“This kind of open-door policy is rare in the antenna and wireless device testing business,” explained Dermot O'Shea, president of Taoglas USA. “We have expanded our engineering team, added more test equipment and now have two chambers here to increase design and test capacity. As well as being able to prototype antennas and PCB’s etc we can test the antenna and devices in operation on site to ensure they work reliably in the real world. We have also now added an antenna and cable assembly operation so we can quickly produce antenna and custom RF cable orders here in San Diego. Quite often customers require products in a few days rather than weeks and we have now facilitated that demand with this new move.”
