Embedded Antenna Outfits Dual-Band WLANs

(Antenova)

Antenova has added an ultra-compact dual-band Wi-Fi antenna to its range of tiny embedded antennas. The antenna, named Minuta, is a ceramic antenna measuring 1 mm x 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm, reportedly making it one of the smallest embedded antennas available today. The antenna was developed for the newer 4.9 GHz to 5.9 GHz frequency, which, now, is less cluttered than 2.4 GHz to the 2.5GHz space and gives enhanced performance with less interference.

The Minuta antenna, part number SRC2W006, operates at 2.4 GHz to 2.5 GHz and 4.9 GHz to 5.9 GHz and matches the Wi-Fi 802.11a/h/j/n/p/ac standards. It offers designers some useful flexibility in the layout of a PCB, as it does not need a position on a corner, it can be placed along one of the long edges of a board.

The antenna is said to be ideal for access points and portable devices, and Antenova recommends Minuta for wearable technology and body-worn devices because it is less susceptible to de-tune when used close to the human body. For more details, checkout the Minuta datasheet.
