Another Breakthrough from Antenna Factor -
Oregon -- June 3, 2009 --
the 'Splatch' Antenna for MICS Band
Antenna Factor's popular Splatch embeddable antenna is now available in the
Medical Implant Communication Service (MICS) frequency band. The antenna is centered at 403 MHz and designed to
cover from 402-405 MHz, making it well suited for MICS as well as a wide variety of general RF applications. By
utilizing a proprietary grounded-line technique, the "Splatch" achieves excellent performance in a compact surface
mount package. Unlike many compact antennas, the Splatch exhibits good stability in proximity to objects and
persons. The antenna is RoHS compliant and designed for hand or automated assembly. It measures 1.1"L x 0.5"W x
0.062"H, exhibits a 50-ohm characteristic impedance, and has a typical VSWR of less than 1.9. The antenna costs
less than $1.00 in volume and will be available along with an evaluation kit in January, 2009.
Our staff will be glad to provide additional product information upon request.
