Linx Technologies has introduced the nanoSplatch nSP250 dual-band WiFi/WLAN antenna for embedded applications. nanoSplatch antennas are a reduced-size evolution of Linx Technologies’ successful surface-mount embedded Splatch and microSplatch antennas.
The nanoSplatch nSP250 is an ideal embedded antenna for use in compact or portable devices targeting WiFi/WLAN and other 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz ISM frequency band technologies such as Bluetooth and ZigBee. The surface-mount nSP250 antenna uses just 80.6 mm2 of board space and costs under one dollar in volume. In addition, Linx designed the antenna to accommodate close proximity effects better than similar antennas. This makes it especially well-suited for Internet of Things (IoT) and low-power wide-area (LPWA) network applications. The nSP250 also covers the U-NII frequency bands from 5.15 GHz to 5.85 GHz.
“The nanoSplatch nSP250 represents Linx Technologies’ commitment to our customers to continually drive cost and performance boundaries to achieve Linx’s motto of Wireless Made Simple,” said Linx Technologies President and CEO, Tolga Latif. “We are particularly excited about the nanoSplatch because of its immunity to proximity effects like those from a nearby human body. This, coupled with the price point we can achieve, makes it well suited for consumer or commercial IoT applications including wearable devices.”
The nanoSplatch nSP250 is available today in tape and reel packaging via Linx Technologies’ distributor and manufacturer representative networks.
