Antenova introduces its Allani high performing antenna for compact 4G/5G designs with high speed data or video

Antenova Ltd, the UK-based manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, is announcing ‘Allani’, part no SR4L069 – a compact SMD antenna for the 4G and 5G cellular bands. This new antenna measures just 45.0mm x 10.0mm x 3.3mm. It achieves good efficiency with a short ground plane, making it a good choice for designs with relatively little space on the PCB for the antenna.

The Allani antenna only requires clearances of 3.25mm beneath the antenna and 15mm from each side to perform well in the sub 1GHz bands – making it a useful choice for small designs using the 617-698MHz band. It is able to operate efficiently while using only a small volume of space.

Says Antenova’s product marketing manager, Michael Castle:

“Our new Allani antenna delivers what every designer needs – a small antenna for the 5G networks, with good performance and good efficiency. This antenna is for  smaller designs that will run on the 5G networks now and in future. It supports the 3G and 4G/LTE cellular bands, as well as 5G, making it a future-proof choice for designs that will migrate to 5G during their lifetime. The improved performance of this antenna will also help our customers gain certifications from the PTCRB and the cellular carriers.”

Antenova created the Allani antenna to operate with in 5G bands worldwide, and in particular Band 71 in the US, which provides good coverage for 5G at 617-698MHz. As well as this, the antenna supports the fast cellular networks  LTE, GSM, CDMA, DCS, PCS, WCDMA, UMTS, HSPDA, GPRS, EDGE, IMT and 5G.

The emerging 5G networks offer superior data rates and low latency, which is ideal for video streaming. The Allani antenna targets CCTV cameras over 4G and 5G, cellular Wi-Fi hotspots, remote monitoring, drone communications, Pico base stations, POS terminals M2M and Internet of Things IoT applications.

Antenova provides a reference design to help designers place the antenna on the  host PCB and integrate the antenna into their circuitry.  Antenova’s specialist RF team offers further RF support for their designs and testing in the company’s Anechoic chambers.

Allani is the latest in antenna Antenova’s portfolio antennas which includes SMD and flexible antennas for cellular, ISM/LP-WAN, GNSS and Wi-Fi networks.

TDK Magnetic Sheets For EMI and NFC Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and TDK

Today’s dense, complex designs can be extremely challenging from an EMI perspective. Re-designs of PCBs to eliminate problems can be expensive and time consuming, and a manufacturing solution can be preferable. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Chris Burket of TDX about Flexield noise suppression sheets, which may be just what your design needs to get EMI under control.
