Manufactured from a high performance material, the ZC1003HF series antenna has been announced by PREMO. With compact dimensions of 10x10x3.1mm, the low profile antenna is suitable for slim Smartphone designs improving communication distance. The ZC1003HF also offers enhanced efficiency over ground metal planes or batteries.

ZC1003HF series is a highly sensitive and compact solution specially designed for those NFC applications where size of components is critical. This innovative antenna requires less board space compared with PCB printed loop antennas and offers up to 30% longer reading distances. Furthermore, this Z-axis coil's design offers an outstanding electrical performance and mechanical robustness, providing an excellent reliability, as they are designed and validated with automotive standards.

PREMO's Z axis SMD ferrite antenna is suitable for signal reception/transmission at 13.56MHz. ZC1003HF series is offered with 2,5µH inductance value and can be tailored according to customer's specifications. The antenna includes a high performance NiZn ferrite core material and low initial permeability to work at high frequency. It provides a very stable performance in a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +100ºC.

ZC1003HF can be used in RFID applications with ISO15693 (vicinity: I-CODE),ISO 14443A&B(proximity: MIFARE) interface, ISO18092, and Felica. Its surface mount and tape and reel packaging configuration allows an easy integration in an automatic printed circuit board assembly process, avoiding handling of the piece that could damage the winding wire.

The product has been designed to match NFC chipsets from NXP Semiconductor, ams, STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments. The antenna is RoHS compliant and meets the requirements of the NFC standard.
