Pulse has announced the introduction of its new NFC stamp antenna for mobile phones and portable wireless devices at electronica 2010 in Munich.
The 15mm x 20mm x 5mm antenna, designed for integration with a main penta-band antenna, enables both 13.56 MHz NFC communication and frequency ranges of 824-960MHz and 1710-2170MHz for wireless connectivity using GSM and WCDMA, according to the company.
According to Pulse, the new antenna is especially well suited to function with small RFID tags with diameters ranging from 15mm to 65mm at distances of 5mm to 20mm.
The NFC antenna operates at a frequency of 13.56 MHz, has an H-field of 1.5A/m, and a return loss of -25dB. For the 824-960MHz frequency range, the antenna has an efficiency of 58 percent/-2.35dB peak, 27/48 percent/ -5.7/-3.1dB band edges, and a return loss of -5.2dB. At the 1710-2170 MHz frequency range, it has efficiencies of 59 percent/ -2.3 dB peak and 40/45 percent/-3.9/-3.4dB band edges with a return loss of -5.1dB.
Pulse will be displaying the new antenna along wit its other technology at electronica 2010 in Munich, Germany, November 9-12 in Hall B6.323.
