FM Antenna Module Targets Mobile Devices

The model M10332 flexible-printed-circuit (FPC) FM antenna module from Antenova Ltd. is ideal for mobile device applications requiring frequency-modulated (FM) radio functionality. According to Greg McCray, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Antenova, "Antenova's M10332 internal FPC FM Antenna Module has been designed to address the growing market for FM radio functionality in mobile phones, which analysts predict will be included in about 55 percent of all mobile phones sold in 2011." Compared to typical existing internal FM antennas, the M10332, which measures 33 x 5 mm, is 70 percent smaller in area than those currently available in handsets. The module includes a patent-pending antenna circuit and low-noise amplifier (LNA) in a laminate base package. The module can be easily interfaced to any FM receiver as the LNA output is matched to 50 Ohms, but custom impedance can also be provided.
