OnBoard™ SMD Antenna

The OnBoard™ SMD antenna family originates from the OnBoard™ antenna concept, but is a surface mounted sheet metal antenna, packaged tape on reel which makes it suitable for high volume manufacturing. One of the key features which eliminate the need of a dielectric substrate, used in other SMD antennas, is the capacitively loaded foot print of the supporting pins of the antenna (pending patent) that significantly reduces losses and increases the performance.
