Tongda Group Completes R&D of Plastic Dipole Antenna Deployed in Polarized Base Station Antenna For 5G

To Seize the Market Development Opportunities Presented By 5G Rollout


HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 29 January 2019 - Tongda
Group Holdings Limited
("Tongda Group" or the "Group") (stock
code: 698) is pleased to
announce that the
Group has completed the research and development ("R&D") of the
polarized base station antenna incorporating Laser Direct
Structuring (LDS) and
Plating on Plastic
(POP) technology. The new antenna is to be applied to mainstream Massive Multiple-Input
Multiple-Output (Massive MIMO)
antennas used in fifth generation wireless systems ("5G").
The Group has conducted R&D on a plastic dipole antenna
to be used in the polarized
base station
antenna, which can direct and enhance the power of electromagnetic waves so
that antennas can receive stronger electromagnetic signals,
which reduces the weight of the
antenna with a
higher level of integration as the number of 5G dipole antenna increases.
Currently, the Group is customizing molds for various
mainstream customers with production of small quantities expected to commence
in the second quarter of this year.
The Group is also conducting R&D on 5G-compatible
handset casings of integrated radio and
automotive GPS navigation antennas to seize the market
development opportunities brought
about by 5G.


For the handset casings business, the Group has
become one of the official suppliers of Samsung since the third quarter last
year engaging in the mass production of "Glastic" back covers for the latest
Samsung Galaxy J6+. This year, the Group will actively expand its collaboration
with Samsung to provide back covers for Samsung's mid-range handset models. In
addition, the Group is also the vendor for middle frames and 2.5D glass back
covers materials of the latest model of Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7. For the
tri-proof and high-precision components, the Group is working closely and
stably with an international customer in providing handset components such as
rubber molding, liquid-silicone rubber parts and high-precision injection
molding parts. In the automotive business, the Group is actively striving to
increase its market share this year on the solid foundation laid in previous
years with Geely Automobile currently its largest customer here. Apart from
providing interior automotive decorations for the Bin Yue, Bo Rui and Emgrand
under Geely Automobile, the Group also engages in small-scale production for
several other models.


The customer base of the Group currently
includes the top five handset brands in the world and it provides comprehensive
handset casings and components solutions, such as Glastic back covers/Uni-Body
casings, metal middle frames/housings and 2.5D/3D glass back covers, as well as
the tri-proof and high-precision components, to cater for the diverse needs of
its customers. The Group will continue to devote its efforts to the R&D of
new craftsmanship in the future, in order to deepen and strengthen its sound
partnership with new and existing customers and to develop more competitive products
of higher quality.
