2 Description
Fusca is intended for use with all 2.4 GHz applications. The antenna uses a ground plane
in order to radiate efficiently, but this ground plane must not extend underneath the
antenna itself.

10 Electrical interface
10-1 Transmission lines
•
All transmission lines should be designed to have a characteristic impedance of 50 Ω
•
The length of the transmission lines should be kept to a minimum
•
Any other parts of the RF system like transceivers, power amplifiers, etc, should also be
designed to have an impedance of 50 Ω
Once the material for the PCB has been chosen (PCB thickness and dielectric constant), a
coplanar transmission line can easily be designed using any of the commercial software
packages for transmission line design. For the chosen PCB thickness, copper thickness and
substrate dielectric constant, the program will calculate the appropriate transmission line width
and gaps on either side of the track so the characteristic impedance of the coplanar
transmission line is 50 Ω.
10-2 Matching circuit
The antenna requires a matching circuit that must be optimized for each customer’s product.
The matching circuit will require up to three components and the following pad layout should be
designed into the device so the correct circuit can be installed:
The antenna feed pad is indicated in the drawing above. Additional pads are for mechanical
attachment only and should not be grounded.

Part No. A10192
In addition to the matching circuit, a separate DC blocking capacitor will also be required
between the radio and the antenna matching circuit.
Note: The component values for the matching circuit will vary depending on the size of
the PCB and surrounding components. The impedance of the antenna should be measured
before selecting suitable matching components. Antenova M2M offers this service on request.
Contact sales@antenova-m2m.com for further information.
10-3 Antenna placement
Antenova M2M strongly recommends placing the antenna near the edge of the board.
Maximum antenna performance is achieved by placing the antenna towards one of the corners
of the PCB and with the feed point of the antenna as close to same corner of the PCB as
possible.
Additional ground and components near the antenna should be at a distance of at least 2 mm.
Where possible the antenna should be clear of ground from both sides, although the antenna
can work well with a minimum clearance of D ≥ 2 mm as shown in the drawing above.

11 Soldering
This antenna is suitable for lead free soldering.
The reflow profile should be adjusted to suit the device, oven and solder paste, while
observing the following conditions:
- The maximum temperature should not exceed 240 ºC
- However for lead free soldering, a maximum temperature of 255 ºC for no more than
20 seconds is permitted.
- The antenna should not be exposed to temperatures exceeding 120 ºC more than 3
times during the soldering process.
12 Hazardous material regulation conformance
The antenna has been tested to conform to RoHS requirements. A certificate of
conformance is available from Antenova M2M’s website.
13 Packaging
13-1 Optimal storage conditions for packaged reels
Temperature
-10ºC to 40ºC
Humidity
Less than 75% RH
Shelf Life
18 Months
Storage place
Away from corrosive gas and direct sunlight
Packaging
Reels should be stored in unopened sealed
manufacturer’s plastic packaging.
Note: Storage of open reels of antennas is not recommended due to possible oxidization of pads
on antennas. If short term storage is necessary, then it is highly recommended that the bag
containing the antenna reel is re-sealed and stored in like storage conditions as in above table.
