WLAN Solutions
Pulse offers WLAN antenna solutions for IEEE802.11 (a, b, g, n) providing single and multiple frequency solutions for 2.4,
4.9, 5 and 5.8 GHz. Antennas optimized for MIMO applications are also a feature of the Pulse range and technical capabilities. WLAN functionality is now offered as an extra frequency in many of the Pulse 3G or 4G solutions. Applications
include routers, mini base stations, MESH networks, laptops, Netbooks and other consumer devices.
Pulse worldwide testing capabilities include both near-field and far-field anechoic chambers. Antenna packages designed for MIMO applications can be optimized for envelope correlation coefficient and mean effective gain in addition
to the standard antenna measurements of gain, directivity, efficiency and radiation patterns.
Pulse provides a full custom design service, including specialized testing, in addition to a range of standard catalog
WLAN products. Also available is a build-to-print full turnkey subcontract manufacture service for customers with their
own design.
Outdoor Solutions
Pulse offers off-the-shelf outdoor antennas for frequencies of 50 MHz to 6 GHz and full custom capability on request.

Internal Solutions
When a customer chooses to integrate an antenna inside a product, the antenna choice immediately becomes more
complex. The performance of the antenna can no longer be measured as an isolated component because the product packaging and antenna location inside affect the end performance. Pulse is committed to partnership for internal
antenna designs to find optimal solutions. Together we test mechanical construction and identify the correct antenna
platform, location and mechanical structure for the best performance. Several key antenna types are discussed below.
Cable Fed Antenna Solutions
For designs with a high concentration of components on the main board,
cable fed antennas are ideal as they take up less of the PCB area. They are
located beside the main board or connected to the housing and connected
back to the radio via a cable and board mounted connector. Flexible PCB
material can be used to fit the antenna into non regular slots. Sheet metal,
printed circuit board or a flexible radiator are the main times of radiator used.
Connectors are at customer request, although IPEX or UFL and MMCX remain
the most popular.
Board Mounted Antennas
Ceramic Antennas provide a very compact design where space is limited. They are an
excellent choice in multi antenna systems where Isolation is a critical parameter. MIMO and
Diversity applications are particularly successful using this type of antenna. Pulse boasts
an unrivalled range of Ceramic block platforms offering solutions for PIFA and Monopole
types, On Ground and Ground Cleared implementations as well as applications support for
matching and tuning to final mechanics.
Sheet Metal
Sheet Metal is normally the lowest cost antenna form. Generally a certain amount of height is required,
so these platforms are not the lowest profile antenna. The design needs to be fairly simple with
straight edges making it is less suitable for complex mechanical structures. Sheet metal can be connected to the PCB using basic clips or a basic plastic mounting structure to make it THT or SMD.
Sheet Metal/Flex Radiator and Plastic Carrier
Mounding a sheet metal or flex radiator onto a plastic carrier can give a reliable and repeatable
structure for volume production. Clips or mounts can be fixed into the plastic to fit the appropriate mechanical construction type, giving the option for integrating other functions such as
speakers or microphones into the plastic carrier.
LDS Technology
Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) is the process by which the radiating element is lasered directly onto
a plastic element. It is ideal for applications with very restricted space and complex mechanical
structures. Connection method to the radio can be by clip or direct mounting, depending on the
layout of the product. Pulse is currently supplying solutions using this technology in volume and
can offer significant expertise in this area.
