Pulse Electronics Corporation Key Developments

Pulse Electronics Corporation Introduces HDBaseT Transformers

Pulse Electronics Corporation introduced its new HDBaseT™ transformers that provide common mode noise reduction for improved EMI performance and isolation for power over HDBaseT (PoH) applications. Pulse Electronics’ HD8004FNL and HD8005FNL transformers are qualified for Valens chipsets VS100/010/020/202. HDBaseT technology is a breakthrough for uncompressed HD video transmission. Pulse Electronics HD8004FNL and HD8005FNL transformers are RoHS compliant and meet IEEE802.3af standards. They come in a 13.72x14.99x5.72mm, 24-pin SMT package and are available in trays or tape and reel.

Pulse Electronics Corporation Announces Management Changes

Pulse Electronics Corporation announced that its board of directors has named Mark Twaalfhoven as chief executive officer, effective immediately. Mr. Twaalfhoven also has been appointed to the company's board of directors, expanding the board from six to seven members and John E. Major has been named permanent chairman of the board. Alan H. Benjamin, who has served as interim CEO since July 2014, will continue in his role as chief operating officer. Mr. Twaalfhoven joins Pulse from Valuec B.V. in Hong Kong, where he served as President, with responsibilities for investing in and advising international technology companies. Prior to his role at Valuec, Mr. Twaalfhoven served from 2005 to 2009 as president and CEO of Teleplan International. From 1996 to 2005, Mr. Twaalfhoven served in a number of positions, including Senior Vice President and Corporate Officer, of Amphenol Corporation, where he led the development of its Asia operations.

Pulse Electronics Corporation Introduces PIMinator MIMO DAS Ceiling Mount Antennas

Pulse Electronics Corporation introduced its new distributed antenna system (DAS) in-building ceiling mount multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) antennas. Part of Pulse Electronics' PIMinator(TM) line of low passive intermodulation (PIM) antennas, these antennas have high port-to-port isolation and superior gain patterns for both ports 1 and 2, providing wireless carriers with improved data throughput and implementation flexibility. They operate from 698 MHz through 5900 MHz, and at -155dBc have some of the lowest PIM specifications on the market. Through Pulse's patent-pending innovation these antennas achieve -25dB or better of inter-port isolation, preventing a reduction in signal-to-noise ratio and maintaining a high network data-rate throughput. Low PIM improves DAS system performance because PIM reduces or degrades base station performance. Pulse Electronics' extremely low PIM spec of -155dBc at 2 x 20 watts (2 x 43dBm) ensures high data rates to support streaming video for mobile devices. With low PIM there are fewer dropped calls, higher data rates, and fewer problems for cellular phone users and operators. Pulse Electronics' DAS MIMO antennas come in two configurations, the DASLTE500NFMIMO with an N-female connector and a soon-to-be released Mini DIN version. The patent-pending PIMinator antennas are housed in aesthetically pleasing injection-molded radomes. They are RoHS compliant and PIM certified and come individually boxed or bulk packed.
