September 29, 2020, Hatfield, UK:
Antenova Ltd, UK manufacturer of antennas
and RF antenna modules for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
applications, has added a high performing 5G SMD design to its array of 5G antennas.
This brand-new antenna, Lepida
SR4L054, is a wideband antenna in SMD form, designed to achieve high efficiency
and performance right across the spectrum from 600 MHz to 3800 MHz. Lepida
operates right across the cellular bands B71 (617-698 MHz), LTE 700, GSM850, GSM900,
DCS1800, PCS1900, WCDMA2100, B40 (2300–2400 MHz), B7 (2500-2690 MHz), and B78
The antenna is linear polarised and has been designed to ensure excellent coplanarity.
Antenova has built Lepida for the more demanding applications in 5G, 4G and LTE
where antenna performance and reliability make a difference. In particular, it is
designed for wireless devices in the automotive sector, aerospace and UAV, smart
metering applications, remote control and 5G routers.
Commenting, Antenova's executive chairman Paul Hill says:
"Lepida targets the growing 5G market, and marks continuation of a successful
period for Antenova. Sales have held up well for us through Covid, and our business
is in good shape to address the increasing opportunities presented by 5G. Samples
of this 5G antenna are available to order now, and the antenna ships autumn 2020."
The Lepida SMD antenna is the latest addition to Antenova's range, which offers
a wide choice of embedded antennas covering 5G, 4G/LTE, 3G, 2G, NB-IoT, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
and GNSS/GPS frequencies. Antenova's lamiiANT antennas are made to SMD designs using
laminated FR4 materials, and the flexiiANT antennas are flexible FPC designs with
a cable and connector offering an alternative choice for some small devices. The
company recently introduced its Rabo group of terminal antennas which also operate
on 5G, as well as the 4G, 3G and 2G cellular bands.
Antenova's antennas are designed for easy integration into a wireless design.
The Lepida datasheet, with 5G performance data and integration guide, is available
to download at Antenova's website, and 5G antenna samples and evaluation boards
are available to order. Antenova provides full integration, antenna matching, over-the-air
and passive testing services to ensure designers obtain top performance from their
SMD antennas. More details at www.antenova.com.
