Antenova Ltd has added a new high performing 5G SMD design to its array of 5G antennas. The Lepida SR4L054 is a wideband antenna in SMD form, created to accomplish high efficiency and performance right across the spectrum from 600MHz to 3800MHz. The device operates over the cellular bands B71 (617-698MHz), LTE 700, GSM850, GSM900, DCS1800, PCS1900, WCDMA2100, B40 (2300-2400MHz), B7 (2500-2690MHz), and B78 (3300-3800MHz).
The antenna is linear polarised and has been developed to provide excellent coplanarity. The company built the antenna for more demanding applications in 5G, 4G and LTE where performance and reliability make a difference. Specifically, it is intended for wireless devices in the automotive sector, aerospace and UAV, smart metering applications, remote control and 5G routers.
Commenting, Antenova’s executive chairman Paul Hill says: “Lepida targets the growing 5G market, and marks continuation of a successful period for Antenova. Sales have held up well for us through Covid, and our business is in good shape to address the increasing opportunities presented by 5G. Samples of this 5G antenna are available to order now, and the antenna ships autumn 2020.”
