Tech Insider: Designing RF Antennas for Wearable Electronics and The Internet of Things (IoT)

Monday, 28 April 2014  2:00 PM EDT, 11:00 AM PT, 18:00 UTC/GMT

Join us and hear from industry pioneers at Synapse, who will share their best practices for designing products that are making IoT a reality. In this webinar, you will learn how Synapse used ANSYS to address simulation and solve issues related to Antenna Design, Design of Reliable Wireless Systems, and how you can use a similar approach in your work.
