Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has added a new, ultra-compact dual-band Wi-Fi antenna to its range of tiny embedded antennas.
The antenna, named Minuta, is a ceramic antenna measuring 1.0mm x 0.5mm x 0.5mm making it one of the smallest embedded antennas available today.
Antenova has developed this antenna for the newer 4.9-5.9GHz frequency which is less cluttered than 2.4-2.5GHz and gives enhanced performance with less interference.
The Minuta antenna, part number SRC2W006, operates at 2.4-2.5GHz and 4.9-5.9GHZ and matches the Wi-Fi 802.11a/h/j/n/p/ac standards.
It offers designers some useful flexibility in the layout of a PCB, as it does not need a position on a corner, it can be placed along one of the long edges of a board.
The antenna is ideal for access points and portable devices, and in particular Antenova recommends Minuta for wearable technology and body-worn devices because it is less susceptible to de-tune when used close to the human body.
Antenova Ltd is a leading developer and supplier of high performing integrated antennas and RF solutions for wireless communication, consumer electronic and wireless M2M devices.
Antenova’s broad range of standard antennas and RF modules are ideally suited for GSM, CDMA, 3G, 4G, LTE, 5G-NR, NB-IoT, GPS, GNSS, WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LP-WAN, LoRa, Sigfox, Weightless-P and ISM, for M2M and IoT applications.
One of Antenova’s latest antennas, the Robusta chip antenna from the company’s ROBUSTA range, for use on metal surfaces and IoT applications, was the winner of the Hardware Award at Embedded World 2018.
Antenova provides comprehensive design advice and technical support, including custom antenna design, engineering, integration and test services to ensure the best possible performing antenna solutions for customer devices. For more information, visit www.antenova.com.
