For low-cost mobile product designs, Saelig unveils the Proant OnBoard SMD 2400 2.4-GHz and SMD GPS and Glonass miniature surface-mount antennas. The latest OnBoard SMD antenna family builds on previous OnBoard antennas, but in a surface-mounted sheet metal solution, packaged in tape-on-reel and suitable for high volume manufacturing. One of OnBoard’s key features, the one that eliminates the need for a dielectric substrate, is the patent-pending capacitive-loaded footprint of the antenna’s supporting pins. The first two products to be launched in this 50Ω RoHS-compliant family are OnBoard SMD 2400 (2.4-GHz band) and SMD GPS (GPS and Glonass). Future variants will include WLAN dual-band, 868/915MHz, and GSM versions.
