What is your name, title, and role at your company?
My name is Younus Uddin, Vice President of Business Development. My role is to introduce Field Theory to clients who may need our RF expertise, consulting, and antenna design services. I build and maintain strategic long-term relations with engineers, product development, and consultants to deliver the best engineering support and services.
What does your company do?
Field Theory has been designing antennas for all form factors specializing in custom connectivity delivering best RF solutions for our clients’ products. Our in-depth experience covers connectivity spectrum from 13 MHz to 40 GHz including LTE (US and global bands), 5G, GPS, Wi-Fi, BLE, LoRa, RFID/NFC, Zigbee, Z-wave, mmWave and phased arrays.
Field Theory’s RF lab helps us to provide solutions in extremely tight development schedules saving clients time and money. Field Theory leverages:
- CST microwave studio for simulation and modelling on a power computer which allows us to provide input even before prototypes are built.
- 3 anechoic antenna chambers, multiple test benches and measurement equipment so we can test iterative development builds quickly as well as support pre-compliance testing for OTA, TRP and TIS.
- LPKF machine to print circuit boards and 3D Printers to make housings so we are not relying on outside vendors with weeks of wasted time in queue.
Field Theory also provides RF consulting and troubleshooting at all stages of product design, from napkin sketches to market launch.
What are some neat projects that your company is currently working on?
Field Theory takes our client’s confidentiality seriously. What I can say is that we work with companies of all sizes and in all industries. In the same week, we could be working on an IOT sensor, a home security product, a medical device and at the same time be involved with a new and innovative, cutting edge NPI (New Product Introduction) for an industry that has not yet been established yet.
How would you describe your company’s culture?
Field Theory is a customer and product focused agile company. Our team is passionate about technology and figuring out complex problems. We have a significant number of tools and test equipment in our facility so we can iterate quickly and stay ahead of schedules. We pride ourselves on being the best at what we do. We make “hard” tech easy.
How does your company differentiate itself from your competitors?
Field Theory will leverage our antenna reference designs to customize them to fit into your product envelope versus a COTS antenna. Our antennas provide better performance in a smaller footprint than a standard antenna for about the same price.
Over the years, Field Theory has built a start of the art RF lab that allows our engineering team to deliver on demand. Our significant inhouse RF lab enables agile development of antennas. We get nearly instant performance feedback on an antenna design iteration. This is a tremendous benefit to our clients as it reduces scheduling time and provides increased privacy to our customers’ products and allows us to be agile and accelerate the speed to market product deployment.
What are some things you are excited about for your company for 2022?
IoT will continue to evolve. There is no stopping innovation!
There are multiple “smart” tech industries now and all of these “smart” tech spaces need antennas for connectivity.
With our in-depth experience with antenna designs and RF solutions, flexible business models as well as our quality antenna manufacturing, Field Theory has positioned itself to serve and deliver connectivity solutions for all IOT communities for 2022 and many years to come.
Is there anything additional you would like to share about your company?
Field Theory has decades of experience in developing RF antennas but also in product development and manufacturing. We help clients develop a better performing product that is easier to manufacture.
Although we will be able to provide the best antenna design with early involvement, Field Theory also provides RF consulting and troubleshooting at all stages of product design.
The clients who partner with Field Theory will find a better overall RF solution and ultimately, a better performing product! We provide a solution that connects the hardware to the software.
