‘Plug and play’ FPC antennas launched for 3G, 4G and LTE devices
Antenova, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has announced three new flexible printed circuit antennas to cover the 3G, 4G and LTE bands. These products are the company’s first flexible antennas for 4G and LTE.
Together, this set of three antennas offers options for all of the world’s 4G and LTE bands, as well as a choice of antenna shape and size. The antennas are as follows: Mitis, part number SRFL026, and Moseni, part number SRFL029, have been developed for 4G and LTE applications, including MIMO.
Zhengi, part no SRFC015, covers all of the 3G and 4G LTE bands B7 (2500-2690MHz) and B30, B40 (2300-2400GHz), including LTE Bands B7, B30, B38, B40 and B41.
Antenova has designed these FPC antennas so that they can be folded and inserted inside a small electronic device, where they will operate flat, folded or curved. They can be placed vertically, horizontally or co-planar to the PCB, and are ideal for use in applications where there may not be room for an SMD antenna.
The antennas come with an IPEX MHF (UFL) cable, in a choice of three lengths for easy connection to a wireless module – making them effectively plug and play antennas, particularly as they can be integrated without matching.
Each antenna has a peel-back self-adhesive backing to fix it in place – which means they can easily be placed in a design, in the desired position, and they can be retro-fitted to earlier designs.
These three new antennas belong to Antenova’s flexiiANT range of antennas, which was introduced last year. Antenova also offers flexiiANT solutions for 3G, ISM, GNSS, Bluetooth and Wireless LAN.
The Mitis, Moseni and Zhengi antennas are designed for applications such as smart meters, network devices, Femto and Pico base stations, telematics, remote monitoring, M2M, IoT and Point of Sale devices. The antennas are available to order now.
