AVX/Ethertronics’ low profile SMT automotive antennas deliver optimum performance across worldwide frequency bands – now available at TTI

Small PCB footprint; applications include infotainment, telematics, Ecall, on board diagnosis, tracking, navigation and vehicle-to-everything communication (V2X)

April 2019 – New low profile SMT automotive antennas from AVX/Ethertronics that provide best-in-class RF performance and give global coverage are now available from TTI, Inc., a world leading specialist distributor of electronic components. The antennas support different worldwide frequency bands and ensure superior performance, yet occupy minimal PCB real estate. These automotive antennas provide broadband coverage across 4G/LTE, 3G, GPS, WiFi, V2X or BT networks, with turning capabilities to deliver optimized performance.

AVX/Ethertronics‘ Universal Broadband Embedded LTE/LPWA antenna (Part Number P822601) utilises Isolated Magnetic Dipole™ (IMD) technology, which provides superior RF field containment and less interference or reaction with surrounding components, important in the electronically-busy automotive environment. The devices resist detuning and maintain a reliable radio link regardless of usage position. Peak gain over different frequencies are 689-960 – MHz 2.6 dBi; 1710-2200 MHz – 4.4 dBi, and 2500-2700 MHz – 3.4 dBi.  The devices have a very small PCB footprint of only 49.6mm x 8.0mm x 3.2mm.

AVX/Ethertronics Wi-Fi/BT/Zigbee ceramic chip antenna (Part Number 1001312) also offers the advantages of IMD technology, enabling design engineers to provide the key requirements of high functionality and superior performance in smaller, thinner designs. Measuring only 2.00mm x 1.20mm x 0.5mm it operates over the 2400 – 2485 MHz frequency with peak gain of 1.88 dBi.

AVX/Ethertronics provides a wide range of SMT stamped metal antennas for V2X applications. Antenna PN 1002289 provides exceptional characteristics, such as Vertical Polarization, ideal to improve performance in Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications.

Designed to be mechanically robust to withstand the rigours of automotive applications, the devices are TS certified and supplied on tape and reel for automated high-volume manufacturing.

In addition, Ethertronics offers a custom design and testing services using its in-house automotive anechoic chamber, located in Antibes (France).
