Antenova Showcasing its Latest Antennas at CES 2018

At CES 2018, Antenova is showcasing its latest advancements in all purposes antennas. On display at their booth, is a brand new pair of high performing 4G/LTE antennas (Inversa and Integra), suitable for PCBs as small as 60 mm which can also be used in 3G and MIMO applications. They are also showcasing a brand new compact, all-in-one active GNSS antenna: The M20047-1 - This antenna operates from 1559-1609 MHz, and offers designers a useful, space-saving option for small tracking devices.

The Inversa and Integra are High Performing 4G/LTE Diversity Antennas for Small PCBs

The two new antennas (Inversa and Integra) introduced are similar – the difference being that Inversa is built for the US market while Integra is for European and Asian markets. Both antennas are available in left and right versions to provide more options for placement on a PCB, and can be used individually or in pairs for MIMO. Both use beam steering to ensure good isolation and cross correlation, and achieve high performance.

Inversa, part numbers SR4L034-L /SR4L034-R, measures 28.0 x 8.0 x 3.3mm and covers the USA bands 698-798 MHz, 824-960 MHz, 1710-2170 MHz, 2300-2400 MHz and 2500-2690 MHz. Integra, part numbers SR4L049-L/SR4L049-R measures 23.0 x 8.0 x 3.3mm and covers  the bands 791-960 MHz, 1710-2170 MHz, 2300-2400 MHz and 2500-2600 MHz, used in Europe and Asia.

Antenova has designed these antennas for use in small trackers, OBDs and other similar devices where space is limited.

The M20047-1 is a Compact, All-In-One Active GNSS Antenna

The new compact, all-in-one active GNSS antenna, part number M20047-1 adds another option to the company’s existing range of positioning antennas and modules. It operates in the 1559-1609 MHz band, and offers designers a useful, space-saving option for small tracking devices. Its key features are the active components i.e the built-in LNA and filter, which act to boost the signal to the GNSS processor in environments where there is a restricted view of the sky and line-of-sight to the horizon is difficult. With the LNA and filtering already built into the antenna, designers will not need to add them, and can save space on their PCB.

The M20047-1 is a very low profile rigid FR4 antenna measuring 7.0 x 7.0 x 1.1mm, making it suitable for use in small tracking devices. It is suitable for tracking all kinds of moving objects, telematics and wearable sports devices. It is named “Active Sinica” and is an alternative to Antenova’s existing “Sinica” antenna, SR4G008, which is marketed for accurate positioning.
