The smallest high-efficiency worldwide LTE antenna
The PA.26A is an SMT LTE 4G antenna designed for direct SMT mount on the device PCB. It provides the highest efficiency in the smallest form SMT form factor, 35*5*6mm.
Due to its rectangular shape and compact size the PA.26A is very easy to integrate and can be mounted directly on the edge of the PCB. Matching is accomplished using a pi network. Using SMT
(on-board) antennas saves on labor, cable, and connector costs. SMT antennas also lead to higher integration yield rates, higher transmit power and higher sensitivity.
The PA.26A operates at all common 4G/3G/2G LTE bands; 698MHz to 960MHz, 1710MHz to 2700MHz.

– HD Video over LTE
– First Responder and Emergency Services
– Intelligent Transport Systems
– Internet of Things (IoT)
– High Definition Video Broadcast Systems
– Wireless LTE M2M Devices
– Medical Devices
The antenna dimensions and footprint are exactly the same as the PA.25A, providing customers with a drop-in conversion from 2G/3G to 4G systems. Care should be taken to follow layout instructions and place antenna on the edge of the board with adequate clearance to metal. Also, minimum ground-plane requirements must be met to achieve targeted efficiencies.
