Johanson Technology's multiband IoT antenna
Digi-Key Electronics
 
Single antenna matching solution covering all relative frequency bands. It can resonate at multiple frequencies and requires antenna matching networks to cover cellular/sub-GHz/GPS -GNSS/2.4 GHz bands to achieve high efficiency and bandwidth. The entire solution requires a PCB area of about 360 mm, making it very compact with industry-accepted radiated gain and efficiency in a 51 mm x 51 mm board.
