Antenna Company launches UWB antennas

The Antenna Company, a specialist in the design of high-performance embedded antennas, has unveiled a family of ultra-wideband (UWB) antennas to enable high precision positioning and angle-of-arrival applications for low-power sensors, anchors, and tags.

The antennas support worldwide operation on UWB channel 5 (6.5 GHz) and channel 9 (8 GHz).

UWB technology enables a location accuracy of 10-cm for real-time location services such as access control, asset tracking, peer-to-peer communication and contact tracing. Applications which utilise 2-way ranging (TWR), Time-Difference of Arrival (TDoA) or Phase Difference of Arrival (PDoA) are also supported.

The UWB antennas from Antenna Company have been designed to offer high efficiency and omni-directional coverage and are able to support industry leading UWB transceivers including the Qorvo DW3000.

Antenna Company’s UWB product line-up includes the following options:

  • AC71006 PCB antenna suitable for surface-mount attachment to main PCB
  • AC71016 PCB antenna with SMA connector
  • AC71026 PCB antenna with micro-coaxial cable and connector
  • AC71046 PCB dual-antenna with optimized spacing for PDoA applications
