Embedded chip antennas are small and durable for the IoT
Surface mounted embedded antennas have been added to the antenna portfolio by Amphenol RF. The surface mounted chip antennas offer electrical performance up to 8.5GHz and support cellular 4G/5G-FR1 frequencies as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth / Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and LoRa, UWB and GNSS.
The embedded RF antennas are compact and have a durable construction, making them suitable for IoT and smart devices.
By surface mounting the chip antenna directly on the PCB, with antenna ensure there is no need for external antennas. They are manufactured from ceramic or FR-4 materials and are omnidirectional. In addition, said Amphenol RF, they are easy to tune and available in tape and reel packaging.
The small size of ceramic chip antennas enables efficient integration into compact devices where space is at a premium. These antennas are well suited for smart utility meters, robotics, intelligent transport systems, set-top boxes and gateways, and mobile electronic wallets.
Amphenol RF provides local technical support and matching of antennas.
