Taoglas unveils LTE SMT antenna with 70 percent efficiency

Taoglas, a provider of antenna solutions to the M2M
market, launched the PA.700.A Viking antenna, a LTE, septa-band, surface mount
antenna (SMT).

It delivers efficiency of over 70 percent in a design
that is significantly smaller than current market wide-band antennas. This
multi-band cellular antenna covers all worldwide cellular bands from 700 MHz to
960 MHz and 1710 MHz to 2170 MHz for GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, DCS, PCS, UMTS, HSDPA,


The PA.700.A Viking is an off-the-shelf LTE antenna that
is ideal for any M2M product manufacturer that wants high performance 4G/3G/2G
capabilities for small devices.


The antenna is delivered on tape and reel and can be surface mounted saving on assembly
costs and delivering greater performance consistency.

With no customization required, development times are
dramatically reduced. Within one week, customers can match the antenna by
simply changing the matching circuit.

Signal loss is minimized due to a simple 50 Ohm CPW
transmission line on the short end of the device board from the module to the

At a size of 40x6x5 mm, the Viking has one of the highest
efficiencies for a small-scale multiband antenna, enabling customers to achieve
greater device performance and sensitivity in areas of low signal and deliver
the data-speed rates that are critical to 3G and 4G devices such as HSPA and


The PA.700.A Viking builds on Taoglas’ successful PA.25.A
Anam antenna, which is one of the best selling M2M antennas.


Product manufacturers are struggling to find LTE
antennas in small enough sizes to fit into tight, challenging spaces and still
deliver high performance. The PA.700.A Viking improves on the best features of
our PA.25.A which is used by the world’s leading auto and medical device makers
in extreme environments,” said Dermot O’Shea, director, Taoglas.
