RF & electronic development

When it comes to the development of antenna systems, Kathrein Automotive can rely on the many years of experience and profound expertise of its employees in RF technology.

Together with our long-standing cooperative partners from the automotive industry and the strong corporate network of the Kathrein Group, we are developing systems for future-oriented vehicle architectures.

Thanks to the early integration of our plants, we develop products that set standards in performance as well as manufacturability. 

In addition, project-specific pre-development is included among our fields of activity. Thus, we offer our customers expert support in the interpretation of their specifications. 

Kathrein Automotive is a world leader in RF simulation in the automotive sector. We are experts in simulation and offer a best-in-class tool landscape (e.g. FEKO or CST MICROWAVE STUDIO), thus setting a benchmark for the industry. Our state-of-the-art 2D and 3D measurement facilities in Europe, North America and Asia enable us to measure our products in the vehicle in an integrated manner during the development phase and carry out customer acceptance tests.

Corresponding pre-development projects and research allow us to define and specify solutions for new services and applications way ahead of market launches. Naturally, the topics of ecology and sustainability play an important role.
