Pulse Electronics Corporation announces a new catalog selection of ferrite-loaded, stamp, and wire-on-carrier near field communication (NFC) antennas. These products are ideal for integration into point-of-sale terminals, security and access control panels, transportation payment devices, and consumer electronics. They enable superior data collection, data exchange, and authentication authorization applications as found in healthcare and other pairing/sharing applications. The NFC antennas allow for the wireless link between two devices, like a phone or security card; typically with a maximum distance of 100mm. The antennas operate at 13.56MHz and are meant for volumetric field strength efficiency rather than antenna gain like traditional antennas.

Pulse Electronics' catalog NFC antennas consist of three antenna families: the W3579 and W3580 ferrite-loaded antennas for tight-space integration in close proximity to metallic devices such as PCBs, batteries, and displays; the W7001 small stamp antenna for small-space applications; and the W7002 wire-on-carrier antenna, targeted to payment applications with mechanical features optimized to fit a display or keypad inside the coil. These NFC products can be integrated into a system for card emulation mode, peer-to-peer mode, or reader/writer mode depending on the needs of the end-application itself.
