Ignion in Spain has developed an AI-powered design tool to create a digital twin of custom antenna designs.

The Oxion tool is trained on data used by Ignion to simplify antenna integration, decreasing time to market for all device makers. The tool uses the AWS cloud to provide accurate performance prediction and device-tailored design guidance powered by proprietary algorithms leveraging real-world experience from enabling more than 50 million wireless devices.

Developers are no longer solely reliant on what is provided in a static component datasheet as Oxion now provides an interactive digital twin that matches the exact device requirements.

The platform is free to access platform was made possible through a grant from the European Union Innovation Council’s Accelerator (EIC) programme. Ignion worked with Barcelona-based AI/ML specialists Basetis on the active learning algorithm that power the real-time results engine.

Oxion builds on top of Ignion’s Antenna Intelligence Cloud launched in 2022 to help designers integrate an antenna regardless of their level of RF expertise. A real-time drag and drop functionality with immediate performance feedback allows developers to tweak the design and decide on antenna component, placement, clearance, and PCB size.

“All good ideas deserve optimal wireless connectivity, and with the installed base of connected device reaching 70 billion in 2026 according to ABI Research, we need to provide easy access and scale our efforts as an industry” said Jaap Groot, CEO at Ignion. “It is this spirit of transparency and democratization using the technological evolution of AI which drove us to create Oxion.”

Once registered, the users are presented tailored recommendations for the specific device being built and Oxion acts as the developer copilot from concept to production and includes direct access to Ignion’s distribution channels to easily procure Bill-of-Materials in one go. Multiple projects can be managed by multiple users and compared all through one dashboard.

“Oxion is a unique offering that will save wireless developers time and cost,” said Dan Shey, Vice President of Enabling Platforms at ABI Research. “It is exciting to see Ignion embrace the innovation that AI/ML can deliver when combined with their years of expertise.”

The Oxion platform is being shown at the Embedded World show in Nuremberg this week.
