Long-Term Evolution (LTE) SMT Cellular Antenna

Molex's LTE SMT cellular antenna features a reference platform of 130 mm x 60 mm x 1 mm

Image of Molex's LTE SMT Cellular AntennaLong-term evolution (LTE) SMT antennas, from Molex, enable higher-speed wireless deployments in advancing 4G technology. The grounding pad provides electrical grounding of the antenna onto the application PCB. The fixing pads firmly anchor the antenna housing onto the SMT pad of the PCB. Measuring 40 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm, this compact SMT antenna (series 146200) requires only a small clearance area of 5 mm x 5 mm around the footprint perimeter of the antenna. The ceramic antenna housing provides high thermal conduction and resistance against detuning effects of environmental interference, and the antenna radiator yields consistent RF performance including high peak gain and total radiation efficiencies.

LTE is a standard for high-speed wireless mobile and data terminal communication developed by the 3rd generation partnership project (3 GPP): a collaboration between groups of telecommunications associations.
