Cambridge, UK — Antenova has announced two high performing multi-band High Dielectric Antenna (HDA®) embedded antennas for mobile handset and portable device applications; a 4 mm low profile penta-band antenna and a six-band antenna. The company's 4 mm low profile penta-band antenna, claimed to be the industry's thinnest five-band antenna, is ideally suited for ultra-thin mobile handsets, while the six-band antenna is ideally suited for mobile handsets, PDAs and UMPCs for the global markets.
As more and more applications are designed into devices, co-existence becomes critical and board space a premium. Further, as the antenna size (volume) gets smaller, the performance decreases, so it becomes even more important to have higher performing smaller antennas. HDA antennas with their smaller size, multi-band capabilities and lower detuning qualities offer device designers and manufacturers more freedom in their PCB layout without having to sacrifice antenna performance and efficiencies.
Antenova's 4 mm low profile penta-band antenna covers the GSM 850, GSM 900, DCS 1800, PCS 1900 and WCDMA 2100 bands and is also suitable for CDMA/TDMA 850 and 1900. With a small volume of about 1 cc and an impressively low 4 mm height, this antenna offers over 50 percent average terminal radiation efficiency over all five bands.
The hexa-band antenna covers the same five cellular bands plus the 2.4 GHz band for Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® applications, has a volume of less than 5.8 cc and offers an average terminal efficiency of greater than 50 percent over all five cellular bands and 40 percent efficiency in the 2.4 GHz band.
