2 mm2 instead of 13,25 mm2 space for your Bluetooth Low Energy or ANT+ balun
What does it mean? What will be the advantage? What will be the benefit?
The dark regions shows the space for the balun. The PCB surface on left picture is 13,25 mm2. On the right picture the PCB surface is 2 mm2 only.
|Just 2 mm2 space||1 component instead of 6||Less buying costs, costs for storage, pick and place and x-raying the PCB|
|Just 2 mm2 space||More space for proper ground plane||As bigger or as more homogeny the ground plane is as better the antenna can radiate and as better the range of the radio device will be|
|1 component instead of 6||Less risk to route components in PCB layout wrong||Saving money by saving redesign of PCBs|
|Just 2 mm2 space||Smaller design||Less costs for PCB and enclosure|
