March 2, 2020 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, announces a global distribution agreement with Fractus Antennas. Through the agreement, Mouser is now stocking a range of Fractus Antennas’ chip antenna solutions, including Virtual Antenna™ (mXTEND™) and Xtend™ devices for cellular, wireless, Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
Fractus Antennas’ mXTEND chip antenna boosters are based on Virtual Antenna™ technology, owned by Fractus Antennas. The technology is designed to replace conventional antenna solutions for off-the-shelf, standardized, and miniature antenna booster components.
Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and functions, the mXTEND solutions provide GPS, 3G, 4G, 5G, NB-IoT, LoRa, Wi-Fi, and Sigfox performance in wireless device applications such as IoT, smartphones, smart watches, sport navigators, wearables, tablets, digital cameras, and handsets. For development of the mXTEND antenna solutions — such as RUN mXTEND™ for high performance in IoT devices, or TRIO mXTEND™, a multiport antenna component that covers GNSS and mobile simultaneously — Mouser also stocks mXTEND evaluation boards.
Fractus Antennas’ Micro Reach Xtend and Slim Reach Xtend devices are examples of small chip antennas for use in devices that operate in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. The Micro Reach Xtend antenna combines small size and reduced clearance area (7.0 mm × 3.0 mm × 0.9 mm) with high performance and integration flexibility. Taking advantage of the space-filling properties, this monopole antenna is ideal for highly scattered indoor environments and small consumer electronics devices.
The Slim Reach Xtend is a tiny (4.1 mm × 2.0 mm × 1.0 mm) rectangular chip antenna suitable for small headset devices with Bluetooth® and other 2.4 GHz wireless standards. Its broad bandwidth ensures high-quality signal reception and transmission across wireless devices and different plastic housings, regardless of how a user positions the devices.
