LAS VEGAS, USA: Leading M2M and IoT antenna provider TaoglasUSA Inc made true 2x2 LTE advanced systems with embedded antennas a reality with the launch of the Gemini antenna series.
The Gemini allows integration of two complementary antennas, the PA.710.A Warrior and the PA.711.A, side-by-side or on opposite sides of the board. This allows a device to meet all global carrier requirements for efficiency, isolation, ECC and device TRP.
Two LTE, septa-band, surface-mount antenna (SMT) antennas can be placed as close as 10mm apart achieving less than 10dbi of isolation unheard of in the industry until now. Visitors to the Taoglas Booth # 6029 and 7611-B in the M2M Pavilion at CTIA’s Super Mobility Week will see the Gemini first hand.
OEMs and wireless device designers can now meet LTE Advanced 2x2 MIMO isolation and efficiency requirements for two antennas in tight spaces rather than requiring larger antennas and devices in order to overcome pervasive noise and isolation problems. It gives the IOT and M2M industry a better way to achieve smaller designs and enjoy the higher upload and download speeds promised by LTE Advanced.
“The Gemini antenna solution includes two high performing embedded antennas the PA.710.A Warrior and PA.711.A designed in San Diego and Ireland,” said Ronan Quinlan, joint MD of Taoglas. “This is an off-the-shelf solution that will work for any device downloading video and other high-bandwidth content. It enables true 2x2 MIMO LTE systems without the isolation challenges that have stumped the industry.”
The PA.710.A and PA.711.A Warriors are multi-band antennas that covers all worldwide cellular bands from 700 MHz to 960 MHz and 1710 MHz to 2170 MHz for GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, DCS, PCS, UMTS, HSDPA, GPRS, EDGE and LTE. The PA710.A works on it’s own as a LTE only antenna and the 711 joins in when MIMO is required.
