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 – 10th March 2017 - Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has developed a brand new antenna for the new Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) standard which was ratified last summer, and will show this antenna at Embedded World in Nuremberg in March.
The antenna is small, measuring just 20 x 11 x 1.6 mm, and is built to a novel design which allows it to perform well within a device, whilst being easy to integrate onto a small PCB.
This is a chip antenna in the company's lamiiANT antenna family. It is named Latona, (part no. SR4C033) and will be exhibited at Embedded World, with samples available to order.
Narrow Band IoT is the latest mobile broadband standard. It uses the 3GPP licenced network spectrum which is secure and free from interference, and offers the combined advantages of low power, long range and the ability to penetrate walls and metal barriers.
"Narrow Band IoT will be good for connecting devices in locations where the signal distance is in kilometers and for locations in basements and underground." explains Antenova's CEO, Colin Newman. "It could be the enabler for some of the IoT applications that are emerging that are not suited to the established telecoms networks, where the data throughput is quite low and infrequent. We see these antennas being used for smart metering, agricultural technologies, building automation and smart city applications with lighting, waste bins and parking spaces."
As with all of Antenova's embedded antennas, the NB-IoT antennas are designed for quick and easy integration onto a host PCB.
Antenova provides full design, testing and tuning services for customers who are adding wireless capabilities to their IoT devices and other electronic products. For full details, please see www.antenova-m2m.com.
