Pulse also manufactures cable assemblies that can be directly connected to all solderable materials, which is more cost effective than using connectors. With the RF performance benefits of LDS, this new process makes LDS antennas viable for the tablet and laptop market.
Pulse's LDS process enables fast product ramp-ups and seamless transfer between R&D and manufacturing sites. Pulse will install this state-of-art LDS machinery in many of its global locations to enhance R&D services in each continent. Pulse has been using LDS technology to manufacture antennas for handsets and laptops for several years. The new systems make laser processing for volume manufacturing of antennas for larger wireless devices such as laptops and tablets a practical option.
