Pulse Penta-Band Antenna Interfaces to Cellular Networks with Any Size Printed Circuit Board
Compact Stand-Alone Antenna Provides Up To 80 Percent Efficiency / Visit Pulse at electronica, Hall B6.323
"Pulse is responding to the need for a stand-alone antenna which is ground plane independent to help our M2M customers achieve fast turnaround in their designs while still meeting performance excellence," said Elaine Baxter, marketing manager, Pulse Antenna Division. "This antenna provides the greatest efficiency available for an antenna this small."
TheW3538B0200 antenna operates over 5 frequency bands: 824 to 894 MHz, 880 to 960 MHz, 1710 to 1880 MHz, 1850 to 1990 MHz, and 1920 to 2170 MHz, with a radiated efficiency of up to 80 percent and a minimum efficiency of 50 percent in all bands. It has a return loss of -6 dB and an impedance of 50 ohms. The antenna attaches to a PCB with cable and connection to the board using IPEX, UF.L, MMCX, GSC, and MCD connector types to accommodate most cellular module vendors.
The W3538B0200 antennas are packaged in trays. More information can be found on the datasheet at http://www.pulseeng.com/file.php?3684. The penta-band antenna and other Pulse antennas will be on display at electronica, Munich, Germany, November 9-12, 2010, in Hall B6.323.
