Linx Technologies, has introduced its Splatch SP610 surface-mount embedded antenna for LTE cellular applications, including LTE-M (Cat-M1) and NB-IoT cellular Internet of Things (IoT) uses. Measuring a compact 10 mm by 40 mm and just 2.8 mm high, the surface-mount SP610 antenna achieves high performance in the more challenging 700 MHz bands as well as common higher-frequency bands. Like all of Linx’s Splatch antennas, the SP610 is designed to accommodate close proximity effects from interferers such as other solution components or the human body. This combination of small size and robust performance makes it especially well-suited for cellular IoT applications.
The SP610 targets North American cellular carriers for all LTE applications with excellent performance in the 700 MHz frequency bands favored by Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, while providing strong performance in 800 MHz, 900 MHz and > 1 GHz bands used by carriers, worldwide. Additionally, the SP610 provides full band support for LTE-M and NB-IoT applications which use sub-1 GHz frequencies to achieve longer range, and often use frequency band edges to avoid other cellular traffic.
The SP610 is available today in tape and reel packaging via Linx Technologies’ distributor and manufacturer representative networks.
