Tiny Embedded Antenna for Dual-Band Wi-Fi ApplicationsRFecho
Antenova has introduced a new ultra-compact dual-band Wi-Fi antenna to its range of tiny embedded antennas. The antenna, named Minuta, is a ceramic antenna measuring 1.0mm x 0.5mm x 0.5mm making it one of the smallest embedded antennas available today.
Antenova has developed this antenna for the newer 4.9-5.9 GHz frequency which is less cluttered than 2.4-2.5 GHz and gives enhanced performance with less interference. The Minuta (SRC2W006) operates at 2.4-2.5 GHz and 4.9-5.9 GHz and matches the Wi-Fi 802.11a/h/j/n/p/ac standards.
It offers designers some useful flexibility in the layout of a PCB, as it does not need a position on a corner, and can be placed along one of the long edges of a board. The antenna is ideal for access points and portable devices, and in particular for wearable technology and body-worn devices because it is less susceptible to de-tune when used close to the human body.
