Austin, Texas – Abracon, LLC (Abracon), The Heartbeat of the IoT®, a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronization, RF, connectivity and power solutions, presents a new application note that provides essential information for designing chip and PCB trace antennas into a PCB design.
The application note provides implementation guidelines and associated challenges for both chip and PCB trace antennas. Roshni Prasad, an associate RF engineer at Abracon, explores the cost versus benefit trade-offs to consider when selecting which antenna type to use for an application.
"Review the key design concerns prior to choosing between PCB trace and chip antennas in order to achieve ideal convergence in cost, size and performance in your design," said Abracon VP of Engineering Syed Raza.
Abracon offers flexible PCB antennas and a wide range of chip antenna solutions. The collection includes dual-band options and the most compact, high-gain chip antennas available on the market. Visit antenna parametric page or Interactive Antenna Catalog to learn more.
