Embedded Wi-Fi antennas

25 November 2020 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

AVX released a brand new series of embedded Wi-Fi antennas designed to satisfy steadily increasing cross-market demand for smaller and thinner wireless products with superior signal sensitivity.

The new W Series embedded Wi-Fi antennas offer a wide range of standard solutions with ultraminiature form factors, PCB or FPC antenna technologies capable of supporting single- and dual-band operating frequencies up to 6 GHz, performance-enhancing foam coatings, and various mounting options. These characteristics enable maximum design flexibility, easy implementation, quicker time-to-market, and reliable, well-matched performance for exceptional network coverage and high-speed data rates in wireless applications extending across the agricultural, commercial, consumer, computing, industrial, medical, and telecommunications markets.

W Series antenna options include support for 2,4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz frequency bands, integrated foam coatings on component backsides to minimise antenna detuning on various surfaces, several different mounting adhesives to ensure material compatibility and enable maximum placement flexibility, and various cable lengths, diameters, colours, and connectors.

Ideal applications include wireless gateways, access points, routers and large area networks (WLANs), smart home systems, industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, digital signage, and a wide variety of other cross-market devices and equipment that employ Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ZigBee communications protocols.

AVX’s new W Series is comprised of three families of embedded Wi-Fi antennas: the W1, W2, and W3 Families, all of which weigh just 0,3 g, measure just 0,4 mm in height, support three PCB/FPC thicknesses (0,1 mm, 0,4 mm, and 0,8 mm), exhibit 50 Ω unbalanced feed-point impedance, and comply with the latest RoHS directives.

All three families are available with FPC or PCB antenna technologies, three tuning options (tuning on plastic wall, tuning for foam on plastic wall, and tuning with ribs), three adhesive mounting options for compatibility with FPC, PCB, or PCB+ foam materials, three standard cable lengths (50 mm, 100 mm, and 150 mm) and diameters (0,81 mm, 1,13 mm, and 1,37 mm) with black or grey cable jackets, and three standard connector options: U.FL, W.FL, or MHF4 connectors in down, up, left, or right orientations with respect to PCB silkscreen printing. They are also available without adhesive, without connectors, and with an optional ferrite bead.
