Synzen Antennas Power Prometheus to Simplify IoT Prototyping and Speed Time-to-Market
Synzen Antennas Power Prometheus to Simplify IoT Prototyping
and Speed Time-to-Market.
Synzen LTE 4G and GNSS antenna solutions.
Taipei, Taiwan - February 8, 2022 - Synzen Precision Technology, a leading supplier
of antennas and antenna module solutions, has teamed up with venture studio Next
Big Thing AG (NBT) to produce the sensor-based LTE-M/NB-IoT development platform
Prometheus which promises fast cellular IoT prototyping.
The new Prometheus platform showcases Synzen's leading expertise in LTE 4G and
GNSS antenna solutions when combined with the latest Nordic nRF9160 module to provide
unrivalled 4G connectivity combined with high performance and industry best GNSS
The building blocks enabling the new mobility and IoT revolution are "always
on" connected 4G cellular and accurate and reliable GNSS solutions, regardless of
the operating environment.
For the Prometheus platform, the latest IoT sensor-based development platform
designed to simplify prototyping and speed time to market for developers of IoT
and Cloud-based solutions NBT chose two of the latest antenna solutions from Synzen
Precision Technology: The OPALA (SZP-C-0L02) 4G LTE antenna and the industry leading
low power FR4 active GNSS solution, PROXIMA (SZA-C-0G03).
"We wanted to ensure an optimised full band LTE performance to facilitate the
wide range of sensors and interfaces which NBT had specified including mesh connectivity
for short range communication and automatic switching between the NB-IoT and LTE-M
cellular networks as well as offering advanced provisioning tools. The OPALA solution
was found to work extremely well with the Nordic nRF9160 SiP and the selection of
our latest PROXIMA low power active solution in an industry leading FR4 package
helped enable a fully certified solution optimised for low power consumption over
the full industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees centigrade," said Synzen’'s
Technical Director Chris Tomlin.
"Through intensive research and development. Our team has conducted a number
of analyses and tests which have indicated that cellular IoT is more reliable than
alternative low power (LPWANs). We selected Synzen Precision Technology antenna
solutions as they offered market-leading performance when combined with the nRF9160
Nordic SiP giving us advantages in both connectivity and power consumption. We greatly
benefitted from Synzen's design-in assistance which they provided through a local
partner here in Germany," said Florian Heptner, Senior Hardware Engineer at Next
