Airgain’s Profile Contour F56NBAAA Embedded Antenna


Airgain’s Profile Contour F56NBAAA Embedded Antenna is a carrier grade high performance flex antenna designed for installation inside of small plastic enclosure devices such as cellular enabled IoT devices. This antenna provides ultra-wideband frequency coverage, providing support for common 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE frequency bands and providing global coverage. Specifically designed and certified for use with NimbleLink Skywire® modems, pairing this antenna with Skywire modems will ensure carrier certification compliance when fitted according to the recommendations.

This antenna is ground plane independent, which means it does not require a large ground plane to achieve the levels of performance. Manufactured with an adhesive backed flexible polyimide material, the F56NBAAA provides flexibility and ease of integration for plug and play use. The length of the cable and cable routing effects the performance of this antenna. The performance detailed in this datasheet is based on 150mm coax cable length terminated with a U.Fl-style connector.
