Antenova Adds Dual-band Wi-Fi® Antenna to gigaNOVA® Range of Standard SMD Antennas

19 November 2008
Announces Mixtus Dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz antenna is ideally suited for 802.11n Wi-Fi® enabled consumer electronic devices

Cambridge, UK, November 19, 2008 --- Antenova Ltd, the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced the addition of Mixtus dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz antenna to the gigaNOVA® range of market proven surface mount antennas. Designed for ease of integration into wireless devices, Mixtus dual-band antenna is ideally suited for a wide range of embedded Wi-Fi enabled consumer device applications such access points, set top boxes (STBs), portable games, media gateway products, networked High Definition Digital TVs (HDTVs) and PC cards.

“Antenova’s Mixtus A10194 SMD antenna is a high efficiency dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz antenna suitable for a wide range of consumer Wi-Fi applications, including 802.11n multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) applications,” stated Greg McCray, CEO of Antenova. “Wi-Fi enabled consumer electronics are projected to reach 329 million units by 2012 and 802.11n products are expected to outpace existing technologies to become the default Wi-Fi technology of choice by equipment vendors. In the growing market of 802.11n in connected entertainment devices, networked TV shipments alone are forecasted to grow to 65 million total units by 2012. Mixtus enables Wi-Fi products to operate over the full 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, making it an ideal solution for current and next generation networked consumer products. This is of particular benefit for equipment manufacturers as consumer oriented networks evolve from mixed-mode systems to pure 802.11n systems.”


Mixtus A10194 is a highly efficient dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz SMD antenna which operates over the full 2.4-2.5 GHz and 4.9-5.9 GHz bands and designed for use in all Wi-Fi applications, including 802.11n. In addition, good isolation can be achieved between two closely spaced Mixtus antennas on the same platform making it ideal for MIMO applications. Mixtus A10194 is a compact 10 x 10 x 0.9 mm3 size antenna intended for surface mounting and requires minimal ground plane. A10194 is supplied in tape on reel and available now for volume purchase through Antenova’s global network of leading distributors and agents.
