Antenova Ltd, the UK-based manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, is announcing ‘Affini’, part number SRFL064, which is a flexible printed circuit (FPC) antenna for the LTE, 4G and 5G NR networks in global markets. This antenna covers all main 4G bands plus 617-698MHz which offers 5G coverage and the popular Band 71.
The Affini antenna measures 78mm x 17mm x 0.15mm, which is small, yet it delivered high efficiency in tests. It has an I-PEX MHF1 connector, so it is easily designed in and it suits small devices that need to operate across wide areas.
Affini provides good coverage indoors on the lower frequencies because at around 600MHz RF signals can travel greater distances with good penetration of walls and buildings.
The applications for Affini will be in small devices operating on the 4G and 5G cellular networks. They could be in telematics, OBD, cellular wi-fi hotspots, IOT, M2M, CCTV over 4G/5G, drones, Pico base stations and POS terminals.
Says Antenova’s Product Marketing Manager, Michael Castle, “The Affini antenna is a useful choice for designers because it is physically small, plugs directly into a design and the antenna doesn’t need a ground plane, matching network or transmission line. The antenna has high efficiency too, which will help manufacturers to gain certifications and PTCRB approval for their designs, and the design can be upgraded to use 5G modules.”
Affini is the latest in Antenova’s antenna portfolio which includes SMD and flexible antennas for cellular, ISM/LP-WAN, GNSS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
