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 […]

IoT M2M Cookbook

This quarter I have a lot of IoT / M2M news for you: 1. Update IoT / M2M Cookbook Since 4 weeks the update is on the server, listed here: http://www.gsm-modem.de/M2M/m2m_iot_cookbook/ More than 12 pages are related to ceramic chip loop antennas for GPS/GLONASS and Bluetooth. Loop antennas have no hand effect and will not […]

GPS antenna selection for a GSM / GPS tracker – DUT 3

GPS chip loop antenna temperature drift

Interference of temperature on GPS antenna resonant frequency The device under test is a PCB of size of 40 mm x 20 mm, again with a GNSS antenna for a small tracking device. Small mobile GSM / GPS trackers are common for pets, humans or assets. Chip antennas operate as loop antennas which are magnetic […]

Helical GPS antenna versus GPS chip antenna

Q: I came across a blog of yours some years back. By chance are you still offering assistance with GPS related antenna solutions? If so, we are trying to find a replacement for a Sarantel helical antenna.  We need to match or improve upon the performance of the Sarantel product. We are looking into Maxtena’s […]
