I'm certainly not an antenna expert, but why does this PR talk about "percent efficiency" when the industry norm is to compare antennas with dB gain compared to a reference antenna? Is this some "executive summary" dumbing-down or a classic case of "the emperor has no clothes"? I'm suspicious ...

"Percent efficiency"? Is this a dumbed-down "executive summary" or what? What's the gain, in dB, compared to a reference antenna? These are the numbers that mean something to engineers! Makes me suspicious that this is "cold fusion" all over again.

I have to admit I am no antenna expert. They did provide other figures of merit. Perhaps I failed to capture the most significant ones. I would love to hear what anyone thinks after reading through their spec sheets online as inducated above.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
