Virtual EM develops hardware for reconfigurable antennas, RF circuits and embedded systems. Both passive and active electronics is of interest and we are always pushing the envelope. Mature technologies are productized using sound engineering approaches.
Virtual EM developes software for Electonic Design Automation (EDA) and firmware for embedded systems. Applications range from Antennas, RF circuits, phased arays and propagation to wireless sensors, adaptive antenna control and automated testing.
