Antenova announced a new embedded antenna which measures only 15.6mm x 3.3mm x 4.4mm, and can add positioning capability to any small, lightweight device. It is suitable for wearable electronics, trackers, drones, navigation devices, and sports applications.
Beltii is a miniature embedded antenna (P/N SR4G013) for small PCBs in GNSS devices at 1559-1609 MHz
The antenna can work over a very small ground plane on a small PCB, where it can be placed in a corner position, and does not need any ground clearance.
Latest in Anteova’s lamiiANT range of antennas, Beltii works with all of the world’s public satellite constellations: GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and GALLILEO, and can add a positioning capability to any small, lightweight device, says the firm.
The antenna is manufactured from FR4 materials and uses the latest in dielectric constant laminate substrates which help to construct smaller, more efficient antennas.
Commenting, Antenova’s CEO, Colin Newman says – “Beltii is a brand new design using new materials. It beats the typical larger, ceramic patch antennas on all counts: it is smaller, more efficient, and performs better. It is a great addition to our range of positioning antennas.”
Instructions to integrating the antenna are provided in the datasheet. Antenova also offers additional services to help customers and OEMs with antenna integration.
Evaluation boards (P/N SR4G013) are available from www.antenova-m2m.com.
