Cambridge, UK, August 6, 2012 --- Antenova Ltd, the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced the addition of Rubra A10393 cellular penta-band SMD antenna to the market leading gigaNOVA® range of surface mount standard antennas. Designed for ease of integration into wireless devices, Rubra is ideally suited for an extensive range of embedded cellular applications such tablets, tracking devices, femto base stations, remote monitoring and other M2M applications.

“Antenova continues to enjoy increasing demand for high performing and easy to integrate standard cellular antennas for the ever expanding embedded wireless and M2M markets,” stated Greg McCray, CEO of Antenova. “Rubra A10393 is a high performing cellular penta-band antenna incorporating Antenova’s patented Magnetic Dipole Antenna (MDA) technology which provides robust and reliable performance across all device applications, which is particularly essential for many M2M devices which are typically in situ for 5 to 10 years. Antenova’s standard penta-band antennas offer design flexibility with the ease of integration benefits of a surface mountable device, making them very attractive to module makers targeting the growing M2M markets and device manufacturers looking to add cellular connectivity into their products. Rubra has already been integrated into a cellular module reference design with the SIMCom SIM900 module.

Rubra A10393 is a high efficiency penta-band cellular SMD antenna suitable for GSM, GPRS and UMTS applications and covers the GSM850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA frequencies. Rubra’s MDA structure provides excellent resistance to de-tuning and offers predictable performance in customer devices. Rubra A10315 is a compact 40x10.4x3.2 mm3 size antenna intended for surface mounting and requires minimal ground plane. Made from low cost halogen-free FR4 substrate material, Rubra is supplied in tape on reel and available for volume purchase through Antenova’s global network of leading distributors and agents.
