Bamboo RF lowering the cost of radio frequency analyzers
MOREHEAD, Ky. (June 22, 2015) — Bamboo RF won first place at an entrepreneurial pitch competition in Morehead presented by the Kentucky Innovation Network.
The company has created a device to inexpensively assess the strength and health of wireless communications systems.
By winning the competition Bamboo RF received a cash prize and the opportunity to present to the Kentucky Angel Investors Network in Frankfort this fall.
Bamboo RF, a company created by Kien Dang and Garret Adams, Morehead State University Space Science Center graduates, is designing a “Vector Network Analyzer” that is significantly less expensive than current models. This will allow the average consumer to detect and test the clarity and strength of wireless radio frequencies without spending thousands of dollars. Bamboo RF’s product will be slightly less accurate than commercial analyzers, but the smaller size and lower cost far outweigh the difference.
The Morehead event was the latest in a series of 11 pitch competitions throughout the state. Other events will be held in Ashland, London, Pikeville, Murray, Elizabethtown, Richmond, Paducah and Louisville. Earlier this summer, Covington and Lexington held regional competitions.
