Using standard antennas for cellular IoT applications eliminates the design fees and cycle times associated with a custom solution, which significantly optimizes time-to-market.
The average efficiency measured on a 140 x 75 mm ground plane is at around 70% in the SubGHz frequencies of 698 to 960 MHz. In the mid and high frequency range of 1,710 to 2,690 MHz it is around 60% depending on the installed location. In best case the antenna can be implemented orthogonal to the long end of the PCB. The radiation pattern is omni-directional, so it is perfect for most applications, even in mobile devices and guarantees high reception.
The internal antenna series offers a selection of different cable lengths and has a U.FL compatible connector. With a size of 53.6 x 25.1 x 0.2 mm and just 0.86 grams, the antenna is suitable for use in a wide range of applications: Medical & Healthcare, Smart Home & Metering, IoT & M2M, Automotive, PoS, Tracking, Telematik Units and Gateways. LPWAN, RPMA as well as LTE CAT-M and NB-IoT are also supported.
