Liquid Crystal Phased Array Technology. Affordable. Scalable.
ALCAN’s beam steering capability is implemented using a liquid crystal layer inside a phased-array, ultra-thin antenna. The liquid crystal is controlled by an electromagnetic field which changes the direction of the received or transmitted beam without the antenna physically turning at all, so there are no moving parts.
Because of the assembly line production capabilities of ALCAN, the cutting-edge liquid crystal phased array antennas can be produced at an extremely affordable price, and with the ability to rapidly increase the production rate to keep up with ever growing demand.
ALCAN’s revolutionary antennas provide a range of capabilities and features:
Leveraging Existing LC-Display Production Capacity
As these antennas have a similar liquid crystal core as LCD TV’s, existing display production capacity can be leveraged to help achieve very low production costs.
