The MicroSplatch™ is an alternative for those wishing to avoid the high cost, long lead times or limited frequency choices of chip antennas. The MicroSplatch™ antenna from Linx Technologies represents a groundbreaking advance in our reflow-compatible planar antennas. Using advanced simulation tools, Linx designed the MicroSplatch™ with performance similar to our standard Splatch antenna, but only uses one third of the critical board space. The small size and low cost makes the MicroSplatch™ an excellent choice for handheld devices such as remote controls and small data transmission systems.
Adding the MicroSplatch™ to your design is simple—the only things needed are a footprint for the antenna and associated proximity ground plane. The MicroSplatch™ is available in the 403MHz, 418MHz, 433MHz, 868MHz, 916MHz and 2.4GHz bands. Custom designs within the 400MHz–3GHz range are available.
