The sketch I made during a three day technical training related to GNSS (GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS). The PCB can be even smaller, but this will minimise the efficiency of the antennas. The GPS chip antenna would like to have a ground plane of 22,5 mm left and 22,5 mm right. 22,5 mm x 2 x 40 mm means 1800 mm2 ground plane for the GSM antenna. Nevertheless, I can make it even smaller, but I canÂ´t cheat the physics.
Why I wrote the IoT M2M Cookbook
In my more than 20 years working with a manufacturer and in distribution I gave the same hints and recommendations to developers of wireless applications again and again. In May 2012 I made the decision to write the story that I have to tell weekly to customers in a book. The target is to guideline developers from the idea for an IoT / M2M device to a final product with mass production.
