As increasing requirement of communication function, from simple voice to video and digital signal transferring, GPS, WiFi, blue tooth, NFC(Near Field Communication), the reception type of antenna is becoming more than ever. For developing 5G, not only an increase in the number of antenna, but also design complexity is relatively higher. Plus, due to the trend of lighter and thinner exterior, Antenna technology or products with features of saving space and quick developing will be a new way in RF field.
LCT (Laser Circuit Technology) is one of such innovative technologies, it is a whole new production technology which combines laser engraving and plating processes. Making an irregular electric circuit onto the surface of solid plastic and resulting in three dimension circuit. it can be used for antenna making for wireless communication products. With features such as space saving, short lead time for R&D, design with high efficiency and flexibility, circuit can be easily changed, poor reception occurs rarely, therefore it is not only suitable for portable terminal products like smart phones and tablet with variable type, but also for automotive communication, POS, and intelligent appliances. In other words, this is definitely the best solution for the antenna design in fast-paced communications industry.
Compared to LDS (Laser Direct Structuring). LCT keeps the same performance such as good reliability and high accuracy in antenna size; it is worth mentioning that, the biggest advantage is that the antenna carrier, not as LDS shall be dedicated special material, which is expensive and not easy to get. LCT can use ordinary plastic material such as ABS + PC, PC and other resin available on the market, cost will be much lower consequently. In addition to that, LCT can be applied to ceramic, and engineering plastic as well. It greatly enhances the competition of antenna products.
