The PA.176.A is a patent-pending, 5G/4G hide-band cellular SMD antenna designed especially for direct mount on a device’s PCB. It provides very high efficiency across multiple cellular bands, operating between 1.7 – 6GHz, in an extremely small form factor. The shape and compact size of just 20*10*3mm allow the PA.176.A to be easily integrated solution for mounting on the edge of the device’s PCB. It is lightweight and is the perfect antenna for mounting on a PCB where space may be limited, as the keep-out area for other electronic components, is minimal. This also allows you to place multiple PA.176.A antennas in close proximity for MIMO configurations. Using SMD (on-board) antennas saves on assembly, cable, and connector costs. SMD antennas also lead to higher integration yield rates, higher transmit power and higher sensitivity.
Typical cellular applications include:
– Telematic Control and On-board Diagnostic Units
– Wireless Medical Devices
– First Responder and Public Safety Devices
– UAV’s and Robotics
– Media and Smart Home
Care should be taken to follow layout instructions, provided in Section 6 of the datasheet, and in placing an antenna on the edge of the board with adequate clearance to metal. Minimum ground-plane requirements must be met to achieve targeted efficiencies. The PA.176.A is manufactured in Taoglas’ IATF16949 Certified Facility and is suitable for automotive applications.
