Company introduction
Who we are and what we do: 
KYOCERA AVX is a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components, including antennas and RF chipsets, engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of KYOCERA Corporation structured to capitalize on shared resources and technical expertise, KYOCERA AVX has an expansive global footprint comprised of several dozen research, development, and manufacturing facilities spanning more than 15 countries and staffed with talented personnel dedicated to innovation, component quality, customer service, and enabling a brighter future through technology.

What makes us unique:
Supplying more than one million antennas per day, KYOCERA AVX is an industry-leading supplier of innovative antenna solutions, covering all major frequency bands and applications. KYOCERA AVX antennas utilize a wide array of materials -including LDS, stamped metal, ceramic, PCB, and FPC- to support a variety of custom and standard configurations (external indoor/outdoor, embedded on/off-board). KYOCERA AVX offers customers worldwide manufacturing capabilities and several differentiated innovations such as unique tuning pads for optimized performance or band switching solutions for the smallest of devices. KYOCERA AVX state-of-the-art global design centers support customers from the concept phase to mass production, including validation and pre-certification testing.

Working with Nordic Semiconductor:
KYOCERA AVX has been supporting Nordic Semiconductor customers for several years, optimizing the connectivity performance of their devices. Either by customizing antennas for their devices with Nordic Semiconductor modules, supporting the implementation of standard antennas from the early stage of the projects, or pre-certification testing for validation, customers experience a faster go-to-market thanks to KYOCERA AVX partnership with Nordic Semiconductor.
In order to facilitate the implementation of antennas, KYOCERA AX has available different references designs with Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160, with performance and design guidelines available online: 

Which projects we focus on:
KYOCERA AVX provides active and passive antenna solutions for industrial IoT, consumer electronics, automotive, and medical applications, having prototyping and testing facilities worldwide to support customers during the design and development phases of their products. 
KYOCERA AVX teams and factories are organized to support small and large projects, component designs or complex vertical integrations, standard antennas or customized solutions… always taking into consideration the best balance between performance and cost efficiency while maintaining best-in-class quality. KYOCERA AVX utilizes an extensive global network of Distributors to support all customers across the globe. 

KYOCERA AVX has 5 global design centers with 25+ testing capabilities to support customers in the pre-certification phase, including advanced measurements like AoA optimization, TRP/TIS testing capabilities for LTE-M/NB-IoT or a world’s leading automotive chamber to measure large devices such as vehicles, white goods, or parking meters. KYOCERA AVX offers also online tools to support customers during the design phase of their IoT devices.

UN Sustainable Development Goals
It’s time to start looking at sustainability from more than one angle.
The UN outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals covering climate, poverty, sustainable cities, and infrastructure. Tackling each goal is necessary to leave a better world for our grandchildren.

Kyocera’s next Sustainability leaders are developing creative solutions to diverse societal issues.

In our Infrastructure Systems R&D Division a junior engineer is developing Smart Road Side Units (RSUs) to realize a world free of traffic accidents. It’s an ambitious goal, but we believe the future is built on the dreams of those willing to challenge new thinking.
