Posts Tagged “Antenas”

Normally I don’t talk about connectors in my blog, but the other day in the office (you already know that I work at Matrix) I attended an internal presentation about a new brand of connectors. Something caught my attention and I am posting about it on here today. Knowing that there are already lots of people that read this blog I am sure that more than one of you will be interested.

I will talk about an antenna connector. First of all let’s look at some photos and then I will explain them:

As you can see in the photos, it’s a special antenna connector that allows you to physically switch between and internal and external antennas. Let’s imagine that we design a GPRS device where we want to regularly use an internal antenna. However as we are used to the GSM world and we don’t want any problems, I want to be prepared to be able to use an external antenna in scenarios where we install the connector in places with very low coverage. We have it easy with this connector. When we don’t physically connect the radio device’s external antenna, this connector will use the internal antenna. But when you connect to an external antenna, the connector physically switches by disconnecting the internal antenna and radio device, therefore it uses the external antenna.

As you can see, it’s a connector that is so simple to use as well as useful.  Available for SMA, RP-SMA and N type connectors.

 Any questions you know where I am!
