AUSTIN, TX – Abracon, LLC (Abracon), The Heartbeat of the IoT®, a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronization, RF, connectivity and power components introduces a comprehensive line of antennas specifically optimized to meet the demands of emerging IoT applications. Offering various chip, patch and external connectorized antennas, the protocols covered with these new products include 4G/LTE, 2G/3G cellular standards, LoRa and Sigfox low power wide area networks (LPWAN), WiFi and Zigbee wireless standards, Bluetooth and BLE personal area networks (PAN), GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) protocols, and RFID readers. These protocols are a necessary connectivity solution in applications ranging from automotive/transportation, agriculture, geolocation and tracking, human body and medical monitoring, roamable appliances, robotics, surveillance, digital signage, industrial and home automation, access points, audio and video, communications and networking.
“Expansion in the IoT means that devices are being connected in new ways,” says Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing with Abracon. “The need for efficient and easy to use antennas is a growing trend. Abracon IoT optimized antennas allow your devices to link farther, communicate faster and run longer.”
“Optimal antenna design is not trivial,” says Dr. Anitha Govind, PhD., Senior Product Engineer with Abracon. “Optimization based on use case, protocol, size and cost is the only way to meet demanding design constraints in a vast array of IoT protocols. This new product line provides the best tradeoffs for each protocol and use case.”
This new product line features high gain antennas that extend battery life, maximize RF link range and minimize size. Compact chip antennas with low profile 0.6mm to 1.6mm are specifically designed for wireless modules, small wearables or other space constraint applications. Unique chip antenna offerings including ACAG0301-1575-T for GPS/GLONASS, ACAG0301-24505500-T dual 2.4GHz/5GHz BLE and WiFi combination and ACAG0301-15752450-T super IoT (WiFi, BLE, GPS) offer high gain and a differentiated product line supporting multiple common standards with a single component.
Patch antennas providing linear and right hand polarization (RHCP) offer excellent gain for WiFi, BLE, LoRa, Sigfox, GPS, GLONASS and RFID applications. The ARRKP series of patch antennas includes a ground plane and connector, simplifying design and eliminating the need for tuning.
External antennas solve a variety of challenges including supporting multi-protocol WiFi, BLE and GPS/GLONASS solution with our AEACBK046014-C2WG active external antenna with 20dB integrated LNA. The AEACAC198013-S698 is a high gain 4G/LTE external whip antenna designed for broadband applications.
