Surface mount antenna for LTE, cellular and MIMO systems unveiled

Antenova, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has announced the arrival of Lucida - an SMD antenna for all LTE applications, including MIMO systems.

LTE is the fastest developing mobile system technology ever. While the current majority of LTE user devices operate in the 700 MHz band, which has been heavily driven by the U.S. market, rollout of LTE networks in other regions now requires devices to operate in the LTE frequency bands utilized in those markets as well.

The Lucida antenna does just that, operating in all of the 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). This makes it suitable for use in 4G MiFi routers, Femto/Pico base stations, portable devices, remote monitoring, network devices, and wearable devices.

Lucida is an extremely small, ultra-low profile antenna, measuring only 35 x 8.5 x 3.2mm. It is built to an innovative design, which enables it to maintain a high performance, wide frequency range and MIMO requirements of the LTE spectrum from its position embedded within a wireless device.

Antenova’s antenna design team has adopted a philosophy of Design for Integration (DFI) where the design approach is to create an antenna that a product designer can place on a PCB and integrate with the other circuits in a convenient way, rather than designing a product to fit around the antenna.

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