Small footprint and high performance in a GSM Dual-Band Antenna

January 12, 2010 – Pulse Electronics, a worldwide leader in electronic component and subassembly design and manufacturing, announces its new dual-band diversity ceramic antenna that operates at both 850 and1900 megahertz (MHz) bands. Designed for use in the US, the antenna provides a high-quality radio interface for multi-purpose machine-to-machine (M2M) devices such as broadband access, monitoring, automated meter reading (AMR), and security.

The W3047A dual-band antenna is compact, measuring just 3 millimeters (mm) wide by 12mm long by 3mm high with a low weight of 530 milligrams (mg).

“The W3047A has the world’s smallest footprint and highest performance level for a dual-band ceramic antenna” said Kent Vu, product manager, Pulse Antenna Division. “It saves board space, is easy to incorporate, and is a cost saving solution, factors which make it desirable for an engineer to design in.”

The W3047A is RoHS compliant and fully compatible with surface mount devices. It is easy to implement and comes with Pulse’s worldwide technical support. The antennas are packaged in tape-and-reel. Additional information is available on this data sheet:
