Femtocell Base Station Application Now Available on the Pulse Electronics Website
The tool provides a block diagram for the application. When the user clicks on a specific part in the diagram, a full range of products appear with complete information for each one; from there the customer can access data sheets and perform an online stock check, simplifying the selection process. For example, if the user clicks on “LAN components” a range of surface mount and through-hole transformer magnetic options are displayed, including Ethernet magnetic transformers and RJ45 with integrated magnetics, while if “WiFi/cellular” is selected, a variety of antenna solutions appear.
A femtocell is a small cellular base station designed for use in homes or small business environments where cellular access is often limited. Telecommunication carriers are deploying increasing numbers of femtocell base stations to resolve network coverage issues.
“Pulse Electronics designs and manufactures almost all the key components needed for a femtocell base station,” explained Mark Jackson, Pulse Electronics worldwide director of field application engineers. “Our engineers understand these products and how they work together to get the best results. Using the Pulse Electronics application tool for constructing a femtocell base station practically eliminates dropped calls and provides access to a local high speed WiFi hotspot inside your home without need to use expensive cellular call time minutes.”
