Omron Electronic Components LLC’s WXA-N2SL is a surface-mounted polymeric antenna designed to transmit and receive high-speed wireless signals in the next-generation consumer electronic products market. The antennas are designed for optimum operation in the WiMedia Alliance BandGroup 1 (3.1 to 4.9 GHz) frequency band. The antenna's filter-assist function allows it to suppress out-of-band noise by 50% or more, enabling high-quality communications between these wireless devices even in noisy signal real world applications. The utilization of Omron’s proprietary dielectric polymer molding allows for both high performance and a compact 10 × 13 × 1.2 mm size. The device operates with a VSWR of <2.5 (3.1 to 4.9 GHz), >6.0 (7.0 to 11.0 GHz). Applications for the WXA-N2SL, Wi-PlaDs (Wireless Polymeric advanced Devices) include wireless USB dongles, hubs, mobile equipment and digital home appliances.
