Antenova is extending its range of cellular antennas to include solutions to meet the requirements of 4G/LTE.
The first SMD antenna for LTE was Lucida, SR4L002. This antenna operates in LTE and mobile bands: LTE 700, GSM 850, GSM 900, DCS 1800, PCS 1900, WCDMA 2100, LTE B7 (2500 – 2690 MHz, LTE B40 (2300-2400 MHz), making it suitable for use in 4G MiFi routers, Femto/Pico base stations, portable devices, remote monitoring, network devices, and wearable devices. It is a small, ultra-low profile antenna, built to an innovative design, which enables it to maintain a high performance, less susceptible to de-tuning over a wide frequency range, and the MIMO requirements of the LTE spectrum, from its position embedded within a wireless device.
For designers who need a lower profile antenna, Antenova offers Similis, SR4C005, an extremely low profile antenna just 1.6mm high for very compact designs.
Alternatively, Antenova offers a group of flexible, FPC antennas for cellular applications.
Zhenghi is a flexible antenna operating at the 698-798MHz, 824-960MHz, 1710-2170MHz and 2500-2690MHz frequencies.
Mitis is a small flexible antennas operating at the higher frequency range 824-960MHz, 1710-2170MHz and 2500-2690MHz.
Finally, a pair of antennas for 3G and MIMO – Avia SRFC025 and a smaller alternative, Armata SRFC011.
The FPC antennas are very easy to integrate into a design – they can be folded and they have a self-adhesive strip to fix them in position within the case of a device.
