Pulse is a top supplier of embedded antennas, which is any antenna that can be surface mounted on the customer’s PCB or embedded in the device. In that category fall the helicals, the Ceramic HTC antennas, the coils, and the composite material antennas. Ceramic Antennas should read: In-house ceramic manufacturing process allows Pulse to manufacture some of the World’s smallest and most efficient compact antennas.

Helical Antennas: High Efficiency 3D molded antennas for SMD process. Ideal for KeyFOB products and other small PCB footprint areas (ISM, GPS, WiFi)

Ceramic Antennas: In-house ceramic manufacturing process allowing world smallest and most efficient compact antennas.

Composite Antennas: Ideal for cellular type of applications (2G/3G/4G) requiring compact and efficient antenna form factors.
 

Features & Benefits:

  • Cost effective
  • Multi-bands available
  • Small form factor

Applications:

  • IoT General
  • Lighting
  • Medical
