SAN DIEGO, CAPulse has introduced a series of antennas designed for OEMs. The antennas are compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, and ZigBee applications, as well as with other devices that utilize Industrial, Scientific and Medical
(ISM) frequency bands. The antennas are omni-directional, providing broad 360-degree coverage to improve point-to-multipoint transmission and reception between devices on wireless local area networks (WLANs).
The W1000-series of antennas contains six models characterized by their frequency and gain. These antennas operate from 2.4 to 2.5GHz and 5.15 to 5.85GHz nominal frequency, are omni-directional, and have an impedance of 50 ohms. Four of the models offer decibel gain (dBi) at approximately 2.0 dBi. Two models provide a "high gain" performance of more than 3.0 dBi. All models are dipole with a fundamental resonance of 1/4 wavelength and vertical polarization. Pulse antennas are RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.
The antennas come in a range of form factors, connectors and color options so the configuration can be selected to match the device. All models have articulated swivel-mounts with integrated SubMiniature version A (SMA) connectors. The articulated swivel-mount allows the antenna to be easily adjusted. The range of motion is between a right angle or vertical (90 to 180 degrees). The industry standard SMA connector that is integrated into the swivel-mount is FCC Part 15 compliant.
Pricing begins in the $4.00-$5.00 range at low volumes. Lead-time is six to eight weeks. Each antenna is bagged individually for volume shipping. Click here for the data sheet.
