Case Study

Cellular networks infrastructure antennas

Since 1996 we have been manufacturing PCBs for infrastructure antennas for cellular telephone networks and our products are in operation across the world.

In 1996 we were asked to manufacture a nine foot long PCB, one of the early GSM900 base station antennas and since 1999 have focused solely upon the provision of a specialist PCB manufacturing service for the worlds antenna community. As mobile technology has developed to 2G/3G and now 4G, we have also continued to develop our own manufacturing technology to keep pace with the requirements of the industry.

Case Study

RF conditioning products

Trackwise offers customers the professional experience of many years of service to the RF industry while remaining on the cutting edge of wireless developments. We manufacture RF PCBs for RF Conditioning products such as combiners, co-location filters, duplexers and diplexers.

Interferences are likely to exist when RF base stations are co-located, thereby degrading their system performances and increasing dropped calls.

Case Study

Improved Harness Technology™

A recent process innovation has extended Trackwise’ capability to the manufacture of flexible multilayer printed circuit boards of any length, more than 8m/300 inches in length, making these the world’s largest flexible multilayer PCBs. The use of flexible multilayer PCBs can generate up to 75% weight saving as compared to traditional wiring harnesses. In high value, mass-critical applications such as space systems this represents a significant opportunity to improve system performance.
