The newly released series of cellular adhesive flexible printed circuit (FPC) antennas from Linx Technologies (Linx), now a part of TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectors and sensors, targets 5G New Radio, LTE, and cellular IoT (LTE-M, NB-IoT) applications requiring a cost-effective and capable antenna solution.
The ANT-5GW-FPC antennas provide a flexible ground plane independent dipole internal/embedded antenna solution. The flexibility and adhesive backing make the ANT-5GW-FPC series easier to mount in RF transparent (e.g. plastic) enclosures, enabling environmental sealing and protection from antenna damage.
Connection is made to the radio via a coaxial cable terminated in an MHF1-type/U.FL-type plug (female socket), or MHF4-type plug (female socket) connector.
“TE Connectivity continues to expand our popular FPC antenna portfolio by adding a range of options in the cellular frequency bands,” said Ganesh Srinivasan, TE vice president of business development and marketing. “We are now able to meet the needs of the emerging 5G Sub-6 market, providing customers with a compact, flexible design option that empowers them to push the limits of their IoT devices.”
The new offering is available now via Linx Technologies’ distributor and manufacturer representative networks. For larger quotes, contact TE Connectivity at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
