Centurion Wireless Technologies has introduced its NanoAnt™ miniature antenna technology that offers system designers a small-sized antenna with superior performance, implementation flexibility and cost effectiveness for a wide variety of wireless applications
The NanoAnt antenna technology can operate from 1.575 GHz up to 6 GHz enabling global positioning systems (GPS), Bluetooth, wireless LAN (WLAN) 802.11a/b/g, 802.11n MIMO, public safety band and other device functionalities. The NanoAnt is designed for high-volume surface mount attachment through the use of pick-and-place processing, and does not require a ground connection. Among the NanoAnt’s unique features is that some applications do not require a keep-out space or clearance area.

The NanoAnt design is comprised of a metal radiating element insert moulded into a high-temperature support structure designed with two legs. One of the legs acts as a radio frequency feed and the other is used for mechanical attachment. Various matching circuits are available from Centurion and are application dependent. The NanoAnt is available in two sizes, 10 mm x 3 mm x 4 mm for GPS, WLAN and public safety and 2.5 mm x 2 mm x 2 mm for Bluetooth applications. The NanoAnt is offered in standard tape and reel packaging for 2,000 quantities per reel.
