High-performance Antenna Designed for WiMAX/Broadband Wireless Applications
St. Louis, Missouri, USA – November 2, 2010 – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of its new SKS230090-16N-001 dual 45° slant sector antenna.
Specifically designed for WiMAX/broadband wireless applications, the antenna operates in the 2.3 to 2.7 GHz with 16.5 dBi gain at 2.5 GHz and +45° and -45° polarization. Significantly reduced upper side lobes and null fill below the horizon are achieved, resulting in reduced interference and better coverage. The antenna features proprietary design elements and low-loss feed network, resulting in extremely high levels of system performance and ruggedness while maintaining a slim profile with low wind and ice loading.
“The SKS230090-16N-001 is an ideal base station antenna for high density wireless network coverage in mobile and fixed applications,” said Quaid Rasheed, Laird Technologies BWA Antenna Product Manager. “This is due to the highly skilled engineering staff of Laird Technologies, and to the utilization of Laird Technologies’ proprietary Artificial Intelligence RF Optimizing (AIO) development tool.”
Low loss feed stripline, network and efficient dipole radiators provide high efficiency and gain. Excellent matching of the radiating elements and feed network allows for superior pattern control in elevation. Optimized for maximum ratio combining, two Type N-f connectors at the bottom are provided for easy installation. The SKS230090-16N-001 antenna is ideal for high multi-path environment, large carrier class deployment, and WiMAX service provider applications.
An industry leader in the design and manufacture of antennas for mobile devices and wireless data, Laird Technologies possesses end-to-end system knowledge and employs advanced, proprietary design tools to bring novel antenna designs to market with unmatched performance that maximize total system performance and user satisfaction.
