The Antenna Company launches ultra-wideband (UWB) antennas

Antenna Company joins FiRa Consortium as Adopter member to expand UWB ecosystem

The Antenna Company announced a family of ultra-wideband (UWB) antennas to enable high precision positioning and angle-of-arrival applications for low-power sensors, anchors, and tags. The antennas support worldwide operation on UWB channel 5 (6.5 GHz) and channel 9 (8 GHz).

UWB technology enables a location accuracy of 10-cm for real-time location services such as access control, asset tracking, peer-to-peer communication and contact tracing. Applications which utilize 2-way ranging (TWR), Time-Difference of Arrival (TDoA) or Phase Difference of Arrival (PDoA) are also supported.

The UWB antennas from Antenna Company offer high efficiency and omni-directional coverage. The antennas are designed to support industry leading UWB transceivers including the Qorvo DW3000.

Antenna Company’s UWB product line-up includes the following options:

  • AC71006         PCB antenna suitable for surface-mount attachment to main PCB
  • AC71016         PCB antenna with SMA connector
  • AC71026         PCB antenna with micro-coaxial cable and connector
  • AC71046         PCB dual-antenna with optimized spacing for PDoA applications

The Antenna Company also announces it has joined the FiRaTM Consortium to promote the adoption of UWB technology.
