Antenova announces an SMD antenna for all LTE applications, including MIMO systems. The Lucida antenna is the latest in Antenova’s family of lamiiANT antennas which are manufactured from high grade dielectric constant laminate substrates.
The Lucida antenna operates 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.
LTE is the fastest developing mobile system technology ever. While the current majority of LTE user devices operate in the 700MHz 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 utilised in those markets as well.
Lucida is an extremely small, ultra-low profile antenna, measuring only 35mm x 8.5mm 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.
Following a philosophy of Design for Integration (DFI), 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 antenna is fully tested and ready to ship from now.
