NB-IoT antennas
10 October 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Taoglas has launched three NB-IoT antennas, including a compact ceramic NB-IoT antenna and an ultra-thin, flexible multiband antenna that supports all LTE bands.

The low-profile, highly efficient NCP.5820 is a ceramic surface mount multiband antenna that supports bands 8 (880 – 960 MHz) and 20 (791 - 862 MHz), as well as band 5 (824 – 894 MHz) to allow IoT devices – such as asset trackers – to work across different regions and different carriers. Its low profile (2 mm) and small footprint (14,1 x 8,3 mm) make it the smallest NB-IoT antenna, according to Taoglas.

The NCP.5820 is designed with the patent-pending Taoglas Boost technology, which delivers up to a 2 dB improvement in antenna performance when integrated into small devices. Taoglas Boost is particularly suited to designs with shorter ground planes, allowing IoT and other device designers to bring to market a wider range of smaller devices that would otherwise not have been able to meet certain stringent carrier certification requirements.

The NCS.5820 is a surface-mount onboard antenna that supports bands 5, 8 and 20. Its low profile (1,6 mm) and small footprint

(11 x 20 mm) allow it to be integrated into even the smallest of IoT devices. As it is a larger antenna, it demonstrates higher efficiency, and Taoglas Boost is also available with this antenna, and any Taoglas onboard antenna.

The third antenna in the Extensis range is the patent-pending FXUB64 flexible ultra-wideband antenna, which has been designed for all working frequencies in the 600 to 3000 MHz spectrum, covering all cellular, 2,4 GHz Wi-Fi, ISM and AGPS, including LTE band 71. The ultra-thin polymer antenna is delivered with a flexible peel-and-stick body with excellent efficiencies on all bands.
