Antenova adds a tiny embedded antenna for dual-band WLAN

Antenova, a manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has added 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 currently available.

Antenova has developed this antenna for the newer 4.9-5.9GHz frequency which is less cluttered than 2.4-2.5GHz and gives enhanced performance with less interference.

The Minuta antenna, part number SRC2W006, operates at 2.4-2.5GHz and 4.9-5.9GHZ 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, it can be placed along one of the long edges of a board.

The antenna is intended for access points and portable devices, and in particular Antenova recommends Minuta for wearable technology and body-worn devices because it is less susceptible to de-tune when used close to the human body.
