Antenova Introduces Chip Antenna for NB-IoT Applications

Antenova Antenna

Antenova has developed a brand new antenna for the new Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) standard which was created last summer. The antenna is small, measuring just 20 x 11 x 1.6mm, and is built to a novel design which allows it to perform well within a device, whilst being easy to integrate onto a small PCB. This is a chip antenna is part of Antenova's lamiiANT antenna family. It is named Latona, (part no. SR4C033) and will be exhibited at Embedded World in Nuremberg in March. 

Narrow Band IoT is the latest mobile broadband standard. It uses the 3GPP licenced network spectrum which is secure and free from interference, and offers the combined advantages of low power, long range and the ability to penetrate walls and metal barriers. Narrow Band IoT will be good for connecting devices in locations where the signal distance is in kilometers and for locations in basements and underground.

This antenna can be used for smart metering, agricultural technologies, building automation and smart city applications with lighting, waste bins and parking spaces. As with all of Antenova’s embedded antennas, the NB-IoT antennas are designed for quick and easy integration onto a host PCB.

Antenova provides full design, testing and tuning services for customers who are adding wireless capabilities to their IoT devices and other electronic products. Samples will be available to order at Embedded World in Nuremberg this week.
