Amphenol RF has expanded its emerging antenna portfolio with a variety of ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna options. The UWB antennas are able to cover frequencies from 3.1 to 10.6 GHz.

These UWB antennas offer extremely high accuracy in location tracking, often within centimeters. They operate with low power consumption and provide high data transfer rates while having the ability to penetrate walls and other obstacles. Ultra-wideband antennas are resistant to interference which makes them ideal for IoT and high-speed wireless applications such as smart home, smart agriculture, automotive, healthcare and telematics.

UWB technology is regulated by international standards to ensure coexistence with other wireless systems and mitigate interference issues. The Amphenol RF antennas comply with these standards in order to provide users with confidence in their reliability and interoperability. These antennas are a great option for engineers working on designs that require high-bandwidth, precise location accuracy or high-resolution imaging capabilities. The compact nature of these antennas also aids in their versatility, and the UWB antennas are able to fit in consumer goods like wearables, mobile devices and small-scale industrial sensors.

For example, the ST1125-11-401-A internal dipole-type UWB PCB RF antenna operates over 3.1 to 8.5 GHz with an impedance of 50 Ω over a temperature range of -40 to 85 ºC. The 50 Ω ST1124-00-401-A covers a single band at 6.2 to 8.5 GHz and is suitable for FPC applications over a temperature range of -40 to 85 ºC.

Amphenol RF UWB antennas join a growing catalog of external and internal IoT antennas currently available in various configurations to meet common wireless protocols such as LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and LoRa.
