Pulse Electronics has announced a new method of constructing antennas to enable high data rates in tight spaces that require 3x3 MIMO configurations such as tablets, laptops, and notebook computers. The DenseAnt TL 1.0 advanced manufacturing antenna technology fits three WLAN antennas in physically the same volume as was used for two LDS antennas without compromising performance or isolation.
The antenna is composed of high dielectric materials to realise a 4-decibel improvement in isolation over standard plastic substrates, achieving higher performance even when integrated in close proximity with each other. The antennas are customised for each application and configuration, optimising them for size and performance.
Jon Yu, General Manager, Wireless Consumer Business Unit, Pulse Electronics, commented: "High-speed data rate applications require MIMO technology, which increases the number of antennas required in a device. At the same time, the space allocated for the antennas is limited. Pulse's DenseAnt miniaturisation concept utilises advanced manufacturing technology combined with the use of advanced materials. This technology enables multiple antennas to be closely integrated with each other thus enabling high throughput while achieving optimal space utilisation in a cost effective way."
Pulse Electronics' DenseAnt TL 1.0 supports WiFi WLAN 802.11n, ac standards. These customised antennas are proven and ready to be implemented in any project.
