The RangeAnt is specialized in wideband antennas that are used for Embedded applications. The MAX family consists of compact antennas with frequencies 700MHz to 3000MHz.They exhibit free-space efficiency of between 80 and 90% and a VSWR below 2:1 across operating bands. The omnidirectional antennas function as a monopole up to 1,600 MHz and a dipole above this frequency. They are particularly designed for 50 Ohm match in free space but they need additional matching components when packaged within a wireless module or system for maintaining its optimum frequency.

These MAX antennas are essentially designed for cellular, IoT, and GNSS applications. These antennas are also suitable to use with Bluetooth, Zigbee, Sub-GHz, LPWAN (LoRa, Sigfox, Weightless), Wi-Fi, cellular (2G, 3G, 4G/LTE, and NB-IoT) wireless protocols, and GPS/GNSS reception. As the antenna does not need a separate ground plane to execute the full performance, allowing design freedom for mechanical and electrical engineers. RangeAnt provides suggestions for suitable matching networks and matching services for specific applications

Hans-Erik Backram, RangeAnt’s CEO, said, “Our research indicates that MAX antennas offer over 20% better performance compared with the nearest wideband antenna alternatives. This gives system designers greater flexibility in optimizing the trade-off between operating range, data rates, and power consumption for their wireless links. For the first time, they can optimize their designs while working with a single antenna, whatever the desired frequency band or wireless protocol.”
