Pulse Electronics introduces the new ThroughAnt antenna technology, a 4×4 MIMO Wi-Fi Antenna system that is designed for optimum throughput usage

San Diego, Calif. – July 14, 2017 – Pulse Electronics introduces the new ThroughAnt antenna technology, a 4×4 MIMO Wi-Fi Antenna that is designed for optimum throughput usage. Devices with wireless connectivity increase tremendously where at the same time the demand for higher speed rate requires new innovative antenna solution.


screen-shot-2017-07-20-at-11-07-24-pmPulse Electronics Wireless Consumer BU has successfully demonstrated a new type of antenna system, the so called ThroughAnt technology, aimed for MIMO applications. The innovative 4×4 MIMO Wi-Fi antenna system shows significantly better antenna performance compared to conventional antennas in the market. With the small size of only 100x12x2mm, and where all 4 antennas are implemented on one PCB, measurement shows an average efficiency of 70% and isolation better than -25dB, for each antenna.

The antenna system can be customized and integrated in any form factor or ID and is aimed to be used in devices that require high throughput performance such as Set-Top-Box, CPE, Notebook, Tablet etc.

As a natural step in ThroughAnt antenna technology, development work for 8×8 MIMO antenna solution is ongoing.


Dr Lei Ma, the inventor of the concept, says “MIMO is an important technology to increase the throughput of the communication system, transmission distance and spectrum utilization rate without increasing the bandwidth. In 802.11ac or LTE Gbps applications, 4×4 MIMO antenna are widely used to better realize the speed and the quality of the antenna transmission. Pulse has unique advantage in isolation technologies to design miniaturization MIMO antenna with high gain and high isolation”.


Jon Yu, General Manager of Wireless Consumer BU, says: “We have the fortunate to demonstrate the antenna system just at the time when technology upgrade is ongoing”, meaning 802.11AC is coming strong and continues “not only the performance is above our expectation but it is also a cost-efficient solution”.
