The WLA.01 2.4GHz Loop antenna is a high efficiency, miniature SMD, edge mounted ceramic
antenna for very small space requirements for Wi-Fi, WLAN, Zigbee, Bluetooth, and 802.11
applications. The WLA.01 uses the main PCB as its ground plane, thereby increasing Antenna
Efficiency. It is tuned for different PCB sizes by simply changing the value of the matching
circuit. At 3.2mm*1.6mm*0.5mm, the WLA.01 is one of the smallest antennas available
worldwide. This antenna is delivered on tape and Reel.
Many module manufacturers specify peak gain limits for any antennas that are to be
connected to that module. Those peak gain limits are based on free-space conditions. In
practice, the peak gain of an antenna tested in free-space can degrade by at least 1 or 2dBi
when put inside a device. So ideally you should go for a slightly higher peak gain antenna than
mentioned on the module specification to compensate for this effect, giving you better
Upon testing of any of our antennas with your device and a selection of appropriate layout,
integration technique, or cable, Taoglas can make sure any of our antennas’ peak gain will be
below the peak gain limits. Taoglas can then issue a specification and/or report for the
selected antenna in your device that will clearly show it complying with the peak gain limits,
so you can be assured you are meeting regulatory requirements for that module.
