San Diego, CA. Pulse Electronics has announced its embedded ceramic multiband chip antennas that combine GPS and Wi-Fi for high efficiency in a compact package. They can serve in many Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the medical, transportation, point-of-sale, vending, utility, security, smart-home, smart-city and tracking industries
Pulse Electronics’ W3095 is a 2-in-1 GPS/GLONASS and dual-band Wi-Fi/BT/BLE (2.4 and 4.9-5.9 GHz) antenna that provides a significant reduction of antenna space when implementing both GPS and Wi-Fi antennas on the same board. It has over 60% efficiency in the GPS/GLONASS bands, over 80% efficiency in the 2.4G-Hz bands, and over 50% efficiency in the 5GHz bands. It has a high isolation of at least 19 dB between bands.
The W3056 is a compact, single-feed, dual-band, GPS and BT/BLE/Wi-Fi ceramic antenna. It has over 65% efficiency in the GPS band and over 70% efficiency in the 2.4-GHz band. This dual-band antenna has a small form factor of 10 x 3.2 x 1mm (L x W x H) with a ground clearance area of 10.80 x 6.25 mm for an easy fit on surface-mount applications. The W3056 has up to 2.5-dBi gain.
“These new embedded multiband ceramic chip antennas are unique in the industry. They are a perfect antenna solution to solve your wireless needs when space is a challenge and high efficiency is needed,” said Dr. Seung Hoon Baek, sSenior FAE for wireless infrastructure at Pulse Electronics. “Plus, having a 2-in-1 combo antenna is a 50% savings in antenna cost compared to using separate GPS and WiFi antenna systems.”
Pulse Electronics’ new W3095 and W3056 antennas are RoHS compliant and halogen-free. They both come in 1,000-piece tape-and-reel and are available now.
