Antenna is small for LTE and 5G network devices
Expanding the range of antennae and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, Antenova has announced a compact antenna for 5G bands worldwide, including LTE band 74 1420 to 1520MHz and 617 to 698MHz.
Lutosa is a flexible antenna which measures 95 x 15 x 0.15mm. It can be curved or folded and inserted into smaller designs. According to Antenova, the antenna is linear polarised and showed high efficiency in tests.
The Lutosa has been designed for easy integration into a device. It does not require a ground plane or a matching network, and is simply fixed in place using its own self-adhesive strip.
Antenova’s product manager, Michael Castle, said: “Designers who specify Lutosa for their 4G and 5G designs will have a head start in gaining certification, because a flexible antenna is easier to design in than an SMD antenna”.
Lutosa is designed for M2M and IoT applications using high data rates on the 5G networks and video streaming. It is also suitable for network devices, cellular routers, pico base stations, drones, remote monitoring devices, and CCTV over cellular networks.
Lutosa is sold in packs of 100, for small volume or prototype production.
Antenova develops and supplies integrated antennae and RF solutions for wireless communication, consumer electronic and wireless M2M devices.
Antenova’s broad range of standard antennas and RF modules are suitable for GSM, CDMA, 3G, 4G, LTE, 5G-NR, 5G, NB-IoT, GPS, GNSS, WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LP-WAN, LoRa, Sigfox, Weightless-P and ISM, for M2M and IoT applications.
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.
