Molex Incorporated has announced the release of an internal mobile TV standard antenna compliant with China's Multimedia Mobile Broadcasting (CMMB) standard for AV encoding.

The economical, passive plug-and-play Mobile TV Standard Antenna can be integrated internally into any CMMB enabled mobile device. The need for slim, highly compact mobile devices precludes the use of retractable, whip-like antennas, which bring durability concerns,” Welson Tan, Research and Development Manager, Molex said.

A notable feature is the hollowing-out of the plastic material of the antenna to reduce radiation loss. The antenna has housing slots that help improve radiation efficiency and vertical ribs that reduce warpage during molding.

The hooks at the sides of the antenna snap into a matching set of apertures at the inner ends of the device covers of smartphones, tablet PCs, notebooks, netbooks, GPS devices with CMMB functionality or other CMMB-enabled handheld devices.
