Antenna Factor's popular Splatch embeddable antenna is now available in the Medical Implant Communication Service (MICS) frequency band. The antenna is centered at 403MHz and designed to cover from 402-405MHz, making it well suited for MICS as well as a wide variety of general RF applications. By utilizing a proprietary grounded-line technique, the Splatch achieves excellent performance in a compact surface mount package. Unlike many compact antennas, the Splatch exhibits good stability in proximity to objects and persons. The antenna is RoHS compliant and designed for hand or automated assembly. It measures 1.1"L x 0.5"W x 0.062"H, exhibits a 50-ohm characteristic impedance, and has a typical VSWR of less than 1.9.
