Antenna for compact 4G/5G design

Antenova, a manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, has introduced the ‘Allani’ - a compact SMD antenna for the 4G and 5G cellular bands.

The antenna measures just 45.0mm x 10.0mm x 3.3mm and is able to achieve good efficiency with a short ground plane, making it a suitable choice for designs with relatively little space on the PCB for the antenna.

The Allani antenna only requires clearances of 3.25mm beneath the antenna and 15mm from each side to perform well in the sub 1GHz bands – making it a useful choice for small designs using the 617-698MHz band. It is able to operate efficiently while using only a small volume of space.

The Allani antenna has been created to operate in 5G bands worldwide, and in particular Band 71 in the US, which provides good coverage for 5G at 617-698MHz. As well as this, the antenna supports the fast cellular networks LTE, GSM, CDMA, DCS, PCS, WCDMA, UMTS, HSPDA, GPRS, EDGE, IMT and 5G.

The Allani antenna targets CCTV cameras over 4G and 5G, cellular Wi-Fi hotspots, remote monitoring, drone communications, Pico base stations, POS terminals M2M and Internet of Things IoT applications.

Antenova also provides a reference design to help designers place the antenna on the host PCB and integrate the antenna into their circuitry. The company's specialist RF team is able to offer further RF support for designs and testing in the company’s Anechoic chambers.

Allani is the latest in antenna Antenova’s portfolio antennas which includes SMD and flexible antennas for cellular, ISM/LP-WAN, GNSS and Wi-Fi networks.
