Microwave Journal publishes a whitepaper to optimize the antenna in a mangOH Yellow design

17 Jun 2020 News

FRACTUS ANTENNAS and Sierra Wireless have published a new technical whitepaper to show how easy it is to optimize the LTE antenna performance embedded in a cellular IoT device based on the mangOH® Yellow platform.

The mangOH® Yellow platform super-smart edge open-source solution has a compact form factor (65 x 42 mm, smaller than a credit card) and includes a tiny RUN mXTEND™ antenna booster component, part of the Virtual Antenna™ family. The mangOH® open license allows engineers to reproduce the design as needed and prototype ideas quickly and go to market in weeks. This is in part possible because the miniature chip antenna component is connected to the RF transceiver through a matching network that shapes the frequency response of the wireless platform, therefore going from a mangOH® Yellow prototype to a final product does not require changing the antenna part: the same off-the-shelf component will fit any device with just a little tune of the matching network.

The whitepaper “Optimizing Wireless Connectivity with Embedded Antennas” is already available via the Microwave Journal online magazine.
