-155 dBc PIM rating gives fewer dropped calls and higher data rates for cellular phone use
January 14, 2014 — Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces 3 new low passive inter-modulation (PIM) distributed antenna system (DAS) in-building, ceiling mount omni antennas. With an industry-leading PIM spec of
-155 dBc at 2×20 watts, Pulse Electronics’ line of PIMinators meets the most demanding requirements of cellular operators and integrators of low PIM components for 2G, 3G, and LTE/4G bands around the world. Having an indoor distributed antenna system allows users to receive cellular coverage inside a building instead of depending on a cell site outside the building.
“Low PIM is the key to the performance of DAS systems,” said Paul Fadlovich, director of infrastructure, Pulse Electronics Wireless Division. “PIM reduces or degrades base station performance. With low PIM there are fewer dropped calls, higher data rates, and fewer problems for cellular phone users and operators to deal with. The Pulse PIMinator PIM spec of -155 dBc truly enables these systems to be maximized.”
Pulse Electronics’ DASLTE500NF, DASLTENF, and DASLTEDIN are the first in Pulse Electronics’ emerging line of PIMinator antennas for DAS networks. They have a diameter of 8.27″ (210.2mm) with a height of 4.81″ (122.1mm). The DASLTE500NF antenna has a 500mm plenum rated coaxial pigtail with N female connector, the DASLTENF antenna has an N female connector, and the DASLTEDIN has a female 7 16 DIN connector for easy connection to DAS networks. These low PIM antennas meet the demand for high data rates and streaming video for mobile devices covering cellular bands, WiFi, and WiMAX from 698 through 5900 MHz, and the wideband design meets the needs of operators around the world.
The patent-pending PIMinator antennas are housed in aesthetically pleasing injection-molded radomes. They are RoHS compliant and PIM certified. They come individually boxed or bulk packed. More information can be found on the following datasheets located at:
