Micro-antenna for GSM and UMTS
Dreieich, 07/2/2008 (profact) – With a length of 21 mm, a width of 7 mm and a height of 3.2 mm, the new micro-antenna from Round Solutions is intended for developers of highly miniaturised mobile radio systems. The company specialises in machine2machine applications and, as Technical Director Harald Naumann explains, the antennas, which are made from a ceramic material, can be used in all four GSM wavebands. In addition the components can be mounted directly on the PCB. This saves material costs for high-frequency compatible cables and plug connectors as well as manufacturing time, since elaborate manual work is eliminated. “As opposed to most of our competitors, we also support developers of prototypes or small series with this and other ceramic antennas," explains Naumann. Hence Round Solutions deliver from an order volume of just five pieces, whereas five-figure quantities need to be ordered elsewhere. “On top of that we provide an individual adaptation service,” Naumann continues. “We provide special guidelines for the integration of the antenna." The antenna is sold under the designation ANT-GXE477. A starter kit matched to this model is also available for test purposes.
