RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Hatfield, UK – 1st December 2015 - Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, announces the arrival of Lucida - an SMD antenna for all LTE applications, including MIMO systems. The antenna is fully tested and ready to ship from now.
LTE is the fastest developing mobile system technology ever. While the current majority of LTE user devices operate in the 700 MHz band, which has been heavily driven by the U.S. market, rollout of LTE networks in other regions now requires devices to operate in the LTE frequency bands utilized in those markets as well.
The Lucida antenna does just that, operating in all of the LTE and mobile bands: LTE 700, GSM 850, GSM 900, DCS 1800, PCS 1900, WCDMA 2100, LTE B7 (2500 – 2690 MHz, LTE B40 (2300-2400 MHz). This makes it suitable for use in 4G MiFi routers, Femto/Pico base stations, portable devices, remote monitoring, network devices, and wearable devices.
Lucida is an extremely small, ultra-low profile antenna, measuring only 35 x 8.5 x 3.2mm. It is built to an innovative design, which enables it to maintain a high performance, wide frequency range and MIMO requirements of the LTE spectrum from its position embedded within a wireless device.
Antenova's antenna design team has adopted a philosophy of Design for Integration (DFI) where the design approach is to create an antenna that a product designer can place on a PCB and integrate with the other circuits in a convenient way, rather than designing a product to fit around the antenna.
The Lucida antenna is the latest in Antenova's family of lamiiANT antennas which are manufactured from high grade dielectric constant laminate substrates.
The Lucida antenna is available to order now. Please see www.antenova-m2m.com for more details.
Antenova is a leading developer and supplier of high performing integrated antennas and RF solutions for wireless communication, consumer electronic and wireless M2M devices.
Antenova's broad range of standard antennas and RF modules are ideally suited for GSM, CDMA, 3G, 4G, LTE, GPS, GNSS, WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, and ISM, for M2M and IoT applications.
Antenova provides comprehensive design advice and technical support, including custom antenna design, engineering, integration and test services to ensure the best possible performing antenna solutions for customer devices. For more details, please visit www.antenova-m2m.com.
