Antenna for 3G, LTE and MIMO offers ultra-low profile solution

Antenova, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has revealed a new SMD antenna called Similis, offering an exceptionally low profile solution for 3G, LTE and MIMO applications.

The Similis antenna measures just 40 x 10 x 1.6mm, half the height of the Lucida which Antenova introduced last year. This exceptionally slim antenna is amongst the thinnest embedded antennas on the market.

Antenova has designed the Similis antenna for low profile M2M and IoT applications where space is tight and its size will be a real advantage - in particular, it offers a lower profile than leading wireless cellular modules which are usually more than 2mm in height.

This new antenna is suitable for Femto/base stations, portable devices, remote monitoring, smart meters, network devices and wearable electronics.

Similis is designed to be integrated within a device, so the considerations of its placement on the PCB and the antenna’s performance within the device have all been addressed at the design stage, making this new antenna easy to integrate.

Similis is the latest in Antenova’s family of lamiiANT antennas which are manufactured from high grade dielectric constant laminate substrates.

The benefits of replacing plain old paper with e-paper displays in automotive assembly plants
Efficiency is at the heart of automation, and that is nowhere more apparent than in the manufacture of automobiles. The Ford Motor Company is widely credited with inventing the moving assembly line, but the concept of moving the assembly, rather than the worker, dates back centuries.
