Antenna Tutorial -Self-made PCB antenna for NB-IoT and GSM for cost US$ 0

Self Made Embedded Antenna Design versus Chip Antenna

The wireless Internet of Things has a need for inexpensive wireless modules and antennas. An LTE-Cat-NB1-module (NB-IoT) will cost less than US$ 6 at 1K order. A self-made NB-IoT antenna on PCB could cost US$ 0. Within 60 minutes you will learn which is commercially and technically the best antenna option – Make it or buy it.
You also will learn how to read an antenna data sheet and which embedded antenna (self-made PCB, chip or Flex-PCB-antenna) is the best option for your wireless IoT application. Moreover, the presentation will show world’s first round shaped multi-band NB-IoT antenna for band 2, 3 ,8 and 20.

Agenda of the Antenna Tutorial Part I:

  • Antenna basics
  • Antenna parameters
  • Working principle of a Vector Network Analyser
  • Workflow and selection of embedded antennas
  • Self-made NB-IoT and GSM antenna on band 2, 3, 8 and 20
  • Self-made LPWAN antenna (SIGFOX, LoRa, Weightless P) for EU and US
  • Chip loop antenna design in for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, ZigBee and GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo)
  • Several antenna designs review examples on cellular chip and self-made antennas
  • Summary on “Self Made Embedded Antenna Design versus Chip Antenna”
