Amphenol RF announced the expansion of its emerging antenna portfolio with various UWB antenna options. UWB antennas can cover frequencies from 3.1GHz to 10.6GHz. These antennas deliver extremely high accuracy in location tracking, often within centimetres. They function with low power consumption and supply high data transfer rates while being able to penetrate walls and other obstacles. UWB antennas are resistant to interference, making them excellent for IoT and high-speed wireless applications such as smart homes, smart agriculture, automotive, healthcare, and telematics.

UWB technology is regulated by international standards to ensure coexistence with other wireless systems and mitigate interference issues. The company's UWB antennas comply with these standards to give users confidence in their reliability and interoperability. These antennas are a great option for engineers working on designs that need high bandwidth, precise location accuracy, or high-resolution imaging capabilities. The compact nature of these antennas also aids in the versatility of UWBs, which can fit in consumer goods like wearables, mobile devices, and small-scale industrial sensors.

These antennas join a growing catalogue of external and internal IoT antennas currently offered in various configurations to meet common wireless protocols such as LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and LoRa.
