Linx Releases the CER Series LTE Chip Antenna

Linx Technologies – a Merlin, Oregon based developer and manufacturer of antennas – is pleased to announce the release of a new embedded ceramic LTE chip antenna, the CER Series LTE Chip Antenna, well suited for LTE, NB-IoT, and CAT-M1, applications. The CER Series LTE Chip Antenna is an amazingly small  37mm x 5mm antenna without a compromise in performance.

Operating in all common 4G/3G/2G LTE bands it has better efficiency and gain at 700 and 800 MHz bands compared to competitive products. This provides enhanced performance for NB-IoT and CAT-M1 applications. The antennas new design provides an LTCC antenna at a fraction of the cost of previous generations, saving valuable board space and the integrated solutions that save time and money for labor, cable, and connector costs during installation or deployment.

“The Internet of Things (IoT) over CAT-M1 and NB-IoT is causing an exponential increase in the number of products with LTE connections.  Instead of hundreds of millions of LTE connections over a few phone designs,  we are seeing tens of thousands of new IoT designs, each with unique antenna challenges,” said Tolga Latif, President and CEO of Linx Technologies. “We designed the CER as a board mounted LTE antenna that is simple to implement and because of its size it can be deployed in a wide range of applications.”

The CER Series LTE Chip Antenna is available today via our distributor and manufacturer representatives networks. For larger quotes, please contact Linx Technologies at sales@linxtechnologies.com.
