The nanoSplatch™ nSP250 is an ideal embedded antenna for use in compact or portable devices targeting WiFi/WLAN and other 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz ISM frequency band technologies such as Bluetooth® and ZigBee®. The surface-mount nSP250 antenna uses just 80.6 mm 2 of board space and costs under one dollar in volume.
The antenna uses a grounded-line technique to achieve outstanding performance in a tiny surface-mount package. The nSP250 exhibits low proximity effect with a very hemispherical radiation pattern, making it ideal for handheld devices and applications typically subject to interference. This makes it especially well-suited for IoT and low-power wide-area (LPWA) network applications. The nSP250 also covers the U-NII frequency bands from 5.15 GHz to 5.85 GHz.
The nanoSplatch nSP250 is available today in tape and reel packaging and is designed for reflow-solder mounting directly to a printed circuit board for high-volume application.
