Centurion Rolls Out Six Low-cost Antennas for Handheld Devices

6/9/2003 - Centurion Wireless Technologies, Inc., the leading designer and manufacturer of antennas and power products for wireless communications, announced a new product line of fixed antennas for handheld devices. Centurion's six new low cost, high-performance stubby antennas are an off-the-shelf solution for handheld device Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) working on tight production schedules. The antennas are part of Centurion's standard product line and are readily available to fit any device working in multiple bands including PCS, DCS, GSM, AMPS, CDMA, and EGSM.

Centurion's standard line of stubby antennas enables manufacturers searching for an antenna solution to get their devices to market faster. While the antennas need to be tuned to meet the manufacturer's device specifications, they require no tooling, decreasing the overall production time needed to assemble handheld devices for voice or data over voice applications. The antennas are available in various dimensions, widths, colors, sizes and design elements to accommodate various requirements. The manufacturer can also choose from several connection methods, including snap-in or screw-in.

"In today's mobile communications landscape, OEM's and design engineers are racing to keep up with ever changing market demands," said Monty Rohde, Vice President of Engineering for Centurion. "Manufacturers can now choose from our standard line of stubby antennas to get their product to market faster, without sacrificing antenna performance and durability."

Each antenna features vertical polarization, with an impedance of 50 ohms. Keeping up with the size demands of the newest devices on the market, the antennas are extremely small, ranging from 10 mm to 20 mm in length. They operate at a temperature ranging from - 40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius. The antenna's gain varies according to band.
