LTE SMT Antenna Attains 70% Efficiency

Measuring 40 mm x 6 mm x 5 mm, the PA.700.A Viking LTE, septa-band surface-mount antenna delivers an efficiency over 70%. The multi-band cellular antenna covers all worldwide cellular bands from 700 MHz to 960 MHz and 1,710 MHz to 2,170 MHz for GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, DCS, PCS, UMTS, HSDPA, GPRS, EDGE, and LTE. The antenna comes on tape and reel and is surface mountable, saving on assembly costs and delivering better performance consistency. The component requires no customization and signal loss is minimal, the result of a simple 50? CPW transmission line on the short end of the device board from the module to the antenna. Made of dense, high-grade ceramic, the PA.700.A Viking is durable enough for use in extreme environments. Taoglas Ltd., San Diego, CA. (888) 455-5499.
