Sofant Technolgies Enjoy Massive Press Coverage With News of EU Grant Win
Sofant Technologies recently won an EU grant worth 2million euros (£1.6million) awarded under the Horizon 2020 SME Instument Programme.
The company are now using the money to get their Smart Antenna technology into big player moble phone devices such as Apple and Samsung by 2018.
Co-founder and COO Dr. Ahmed El-Reyis said “We call this a smart antenna because it has been designed to seek out the strongest signal and focus on it, rather than the current model that constantly radiates energy in all directions.
“We have been researching and planning this project for ten years to perfect the design. This funding will enable us to take the product to foundry and we’re currently asking for tenders.”
He added: “We’re very excited about this new funding and see it as a real opportunity to impact on the future direction of the global smart phone industry and to create a market-leading company. We aim to have this product available to mobile phone manufacturers by 2018.”
