Q: Thanks for all the materials you shared. I am reading the cookbook but I can only find some guidelines so build a GSM IFA antenna. A: Can you please share with me the exact dimensions you used in your simulation? Q: As I previously mentioned, I just bought your book to copy-paste your antenna […]
In which frequency bands will LTE-M and NB-IoT operate in DACH?
GSM / NB-IoT antenna and radio certification
Questions about radio certification will be answered in our LPWAN and BLE seminars. About 1/3 of the time we explain how to certify wireless IoT devices. The wireless part is only a small part which has to be tested according to RED. Question about certification and antenna Q: I have a question for you. It […]
Request for an NB-IoT PCB antenna
Wow, 3.2 dBi gain and 79 % antenna efficiency – a mega-great antenna, or is it?
Do you use antennas in your products? Do you compare data sheets? Do you have problems comparing? Are the antennas in your device not compliant with the data sheet? Are there problems with radio certification? Then I will be glad to help you, starting with the analysis of the data sheets all the way up […]
NB-IoT in a matchbox
IoT M2M Cookbook – The outlook for embedded antenna design
The IoT M2M Cookbook contains a simulation of a dual F antenna for cellular. This antenna has been customized several times by customers, or by us on behalf of customers. The Gillette order button using this base design and described in the book supports NB-IoT, LTE-M and GSM from about 750 MHz with 960 MHz […]
How to calculate the link budget in LPWAN
The link budget is the total of all losses and gains from the transmission of a radio wave. A wave is amplified or attenuated by the antenna. During the transmission of a signal between transmitter and receiver, data can be lost. The study of losses and gains is therefore important to calculate the reliability and […]
From concept to your wireless IoT button
The akorIoT Group has a development team with many years of experience in wireless data transmission which today is termed “Wireless IoT”. The integration of antennas into enclosures is another area of expertise for the akorIoT Group; in addition to standard antennas such as solderable chip antennas or flex PCB antennas, customer-specific antennas are often […]
BG95 / BG77 antenna selection and antenna matching
In order to save development and approval costs, the antenna, frequency bands, ground plane size and housing should be carefully designed at the beginning of development. If the company lacks in-house experience with radio, antennas and worldwide approval, we recommend consulting an external consultant. The following text is intended to make you think. I use […]
