Q.

Does ADI have any antenna or PCB recommendation reference available for the ADuCRF101?

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

A.

The antenna is the heart of any wireless system; it gives the wireless system three fundamental properties: gain, direction, and polarization. Various options are available for antennas depending on frequency, range, usage indoor or outdoors. Selection of an antenna is generally a compromise between size, cost and performance.

 

Most commonly used antennas are monopole antennas, some of the recommended antennas to be used with ADuCRF101 are listed below. These are readily available from Digi-Key

 

Frequency                          Antenna Type                    Digi-Key Part No.

 

433 MHz                             Monopole                          ANT-433-CW-HWR-SMA

433 MHz                             Chip Antenna                     ANT-433-SP-ND

 

868 MHz                             Monopole                          ANT-868-CW-HWR-SMA  

868 MHz                             Chip Antenna                     ANT-868-CHP-TCT-ND

 

915 MHz                             Monopole                          ANT-916-CW-HWR-SMA-ND

915 MHz                             Chip Antenna                     712-1535-1-ND

 

We are in the process of evaluating the PCB antenna for the ADuCRF101, the design would be released in near future.
