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 – 21st September 2016 - Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, is announcing Beltii, (P/N SR4G013), a brand new embedded antenna which measures only 15.6mm x 3.3mm x 4.4mm, and operates with all global public satellite constellations.
The antenna has been cleverly designed to work over a very small ground plane on a small PCB, where it can be placed in a corner position, and does not need any ground clearance.
Beltii works with all of the world's public satellite constellations: GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and GALLILEO, and can add a positioning capability to any small, lightweight device. It is suitable for wearable electronics, trackers, drones, navigation devices, and sports applications.
It is the latest in Antenova's lamiiANT range of antennas, which are manufactured from FR4 materials and use the latest in dielectric constant laminate substrates to construct smaller, more efficient antennas.
Commenting, Antenova's CEO, Colin Newman says – "Beltii is a brand new design using new materials. It beats the typical larger, ceramic patch antennas on all counts: it is smaller, more efficient, and performs better. It is a great addition to our range of positioning antennas."
As the performance of a wireless device depends upon the performance of its antenna, and the performance of the antenna depends upon how it is integrated into the PCB, Antenova's antenna designers give the integration requirement top priority and design each antenna so that it can be integrated easily, and to perform well in situ within the device. Antenova calls this concept DFI, or Design For Integration.
Antenova also provides detailed datasheets with advice on integrating the antenna, and offers the services of its engineering team to help customers and OEMs with antenna integration if required.
Evaluation boards (P/N SR4G013-U1) are available from www.antenova-m2m.com, where you will find full details of all of Antenova's embedded antennas.
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.
