Pasternack Enterprises (Irvine, CA) released a new family of high frequency, WR-15 waveguide antennas. Offered in this release are four high gain WR-15 horn antennas operating between 50 GHz and 70 GHz and are available in 20, 24, 34, and 42 dBi gain models. Pasternack’s WR-15 waveguide horn antennas pairs seamlessly with the recently added 60 GHz transmit/receive development system (PEM003-KIT), which enables companies to experiment and develop applications in the globally-unlicensed 60 GHz frequency band. Using two of Pasternack’s WR-15 beam antennas rated to 42 dBi gain (PE9881-42), a user is able to transmit and receive a 60 GHz signal at a distance of one kilometer (km), making these antennas an ideal solution for high frequency point-to-point backhaul. The antennas are designed for high-bandwidth applications, including:

  • Point-to-point links.
  • GigE wireless LAN.
  • Millimeter radiometry.
  • Uncompressed HD video.
  • FMCW radar.
  • Millimeter scintillometry.
  • Campus networks.
  • Multi-gigabit wireless communications.
