The EMB-910004 antenna is a dual-band dipole designed to cover the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi bands. The antenna design consists of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz half-wavelength dipoles and a 5 GHz reflector. The use of a reflector produces a slight directionality in the 5 GHz radiation patterns and desensitizes the antenna to reflective surfaces and/or obstructions that are located behind the antenna in the direction of the cable. This allows the antenna to be placed in front of an external reflector to direct the radiated energy at 2.4 GHz (if desirable) without severely impacting the 5 GHz return loss and radiation patterns. Additionally, the slight directionality in the 5 GHz radiation patterns can be exploited to improve pattern diversity and increase the overall system coverage area when utilized in multi-antenna MIMO and MU-MIMO systems.
The EMB-910004 antenna is designed to be mounted to a plastic support or directly to a non-metallic surface in the host product with plastic screws/nuts, heat stakes, or other features in the host device. The antenna is tuned to be mounted to a 0.1″ (2.5 [mm]) thick plastic surface. The antenna comes with an attached 6″ micro-coax cable having a U.FL-style plug connector. It is approved for use with the PCTEL RM-WIFI-AC-2X2-HP 5 GHz radio module.
