Nearson patch antennas operate in the 2.4 GHz or 5.x GHz band for 802.11(b), (g) and (a) applications. The patch antennas are designed in a small compact housing which provides high efficiency and a low cost solution. These antennas are a single array, linear polarization with a 60( beam width available in two models, SPA-003 and SPA-010. The SPA-003 model has a 3 dBi gain, 6 inches RG316 cable with a standard SMA male connector termination and is approximately 1.8 inches× 1.8 inches× 0.5 inches in size. The SPA-010 model has a 10 dBi high gain, an SMA female connector termination on the antenna and is approximately 4.7 inches× 4.7 inches× 1.1 inches in size. A custom extension cable assembly can be built upon request. The SPA-010 model provides a user-defined, multi-directional mounting hardware that can be easily assembled and mounted on a wall or ceiling for indoor/outdoor applications.
