Hatfield, UK – 23rd February 2016 – As the doors open for Embedded World 2016, Antenova Ltd, manufacturer
of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, is revealing a new SMD antenna
called Similis, which offers an exceptionally low profile solution for 3G, LTE and MIMO applications.
Similis antenna measures just 40 x 10 x 1.6 mm, making it literally half the height of the popular
Lucida which Antenova introduced last year. This exceptionally slim antenna will definitely be among
the very thinnest embedded antennas on the market and should catch the eye of product designers at Embedded
Antenova has designed the Similis antenna for low profile M2M and IoT applications where space is
tight and its size will be a real advantage - in particular, it offers a lower profile than leading
wireless cellular modules which are usually more than 2mm in height.
This new antenna is suitable for Femto/base stations, portable devices, remote monitoring, smart
meters, network devices and wearable electronics.
Like all of Antenova's antennas, Similis is designed to be integrated within a device, so the considerations
of its placement on the PCB and the antenna's performance within the device have all been addressed
at the design stage, making this new antenna easy to integrate into a design.
Similis is the latest in Antenova's family of lamiiANT antennas which are manufactured from high
grade dielectric constant laminate substrates.
Antenova is showing samples of the Similis antenna at Embedded World along with many other devices.
