Provide high-efficiency in a low-cost, compact package
August 06, 2015 — Pulse Electronics Corporation announces its embedded ceramic multi-band chip antennas that combine GPS and WiFi for high efficiency in a compact package. Their small size, low cost, high efficiencies, and multi-band capabilities fulfill the demands of many consumer and industrial electronic devices.  These can be a seamless antenna solution for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the medical, transportation, point-of-sale, vending, utility, security, and tracking industries, as well as for Smart homes/cities.

Pulse Electronics’ W3095 is a 2-in-1 GPS/Glonass and dual-band WiFi/BT/BLE (2.4 and 4.9–5.9 GHz) antenna which provides a significant reduction of antenna space when implementing both GPS and WiFi antennas on the same board. It has over 60% efficiency in the GPS/GLONASS bands, over 80% efficiency in the 2.4GHz 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/WiFi ceramic antenna. It has over 65% efficiency in the GPS band and over 70% efficiency in the 2.4GHz band.  This dual-band antenna has a very small form factor of 10 x 3.2 x 1mm (L x W x H) with a ground clearance area of 10.80 x 6.25mm for an easy fit on surface mount applications. The W3056 has up to 2.5dBi gain.

“These new embedded multi-band 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, Senior FAE, Wireless Infrastructure 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 1000 piece tape and reel and are available now. For more information check out the datasheets at and, visit the website at, or contact Pulse Electronics at
