Flexible PCB Antenna for future-proof device design for 5G and 4G globally
The patented Maximus FXUB66 flexible wideband antenna has been designed to cover all working frequencies in the 600-6000 MHz spectrum, including all Cellular(5G/4G/3G/2G), NB-IoT, Cat-M, Wi-Fi, ISM and GNSS bands. Its use in a device improves substantially the radiated power and sensitivity and enables the highest throughput rates of today’s broadband devices.
The antenna is delivered with a flexible body with ground breaking high efficiencies on all bands, ground-plane independent, with a cable and connector for easy installation. It is made of durable flexible polymer, with a peak gain of 5dBi, an efficiency of more than 60% across all cellular bands and is designed to be mounted directly onto a plastic or glass enclosure / cover.
At 120.4×50.4×0.2mm, the antenna is ultra thin. It is assembled by a simple “peel and stick” process, attaching securely to non-metal surfaces via 3M adhesive. It enables designers to use only one antenna that covers all frequencies and future proofs device design for 5G and 4G globally. It is also the ideal antenna to fit in devices that are being retrofitted with wireless functionality, as it will cover non cellular applications such as 868, 915MHz or Zigbee applications. Its inherently wide bandwidth is more resistant to detuning than traditional small but narrow-band legacy antennas.
The Maximus antenna has a unique hybrid design. Within one antenna structure the electromagnetic waves travel in two predominant propagation modes – one for lower frequencies, (e.g. 5G at 600 MHz) and the other for higher 5G/4G and Wi-Fi frequencies up to 6GHz. It is an ideal choice for any device maker that needs to keep manufacturing costs down over the lifetime of a product, as the same antenna can be used if the radio module is upgraded to work on a different frequency band.
