Molex Inc. has announced development of new technologies for antennas that the company said incorporate proprietary bandwidth-enhancing technologies. The MobliquA technology is engineered to improve impedance bandwidth in any application with a wireless interface antenna such as mobile phones, portable electronics and standard antennas in industrial applications, detailed the company.

According to Molex, the MobliquA technology offers a strong multiuse platform supporting both single and dual feed RF architectures within the same antenna structure. The dual feed configuration can provide at least 20dB isolation between the input ports, while maintaining the bandwidth-enhancing features. The isolation and bandwidth simplifies optimization of antenna impedances to match different RF engines, which reduces current consumption and improves power transfer efficiency, Molex explained.


MobliquA can be used in mobile phones, portable TVs and standard antennas in industrial applications.

MobliquA technology provides a high degree of immunity toward insertion of metal objects into the antenna volume, indicated the company. Additionally, it enables use of RF decoupled or grounded parts such as a grounded connector housing as an integrated component of the antenna system. Furthermore, the technology claims to provide excellent ESD protection of the front end due to its unique feeding techniques combined with a direct grounding of the antenna elements.

MobliquA bandwidth enhancing antenna technology is now available for new designs.
