Combination Embedded Antennas

Combination Embedded Antennas are used in systems where a module may support different technologies together or when 2 modules may be used at the same time but PCB real estate is an issue.

There are 3 main types of embedded combination antennas: Ceramic Patches Antennas, Chip Antennas and Flexible PCB antennas. Each have their own advantages. For best performance but largest size ceramic patches are the best option. For Chip Antennas they are a great on-board solution for areas where a small PCB may be used but they have reduced performance due to their size. Flexible PCB Antennas are great in areas where there is no space on the PCB for a Ceramic Patch or Chip antenna but they will add labour cost due to assembly with cables and connectors.
