Today, wireless connectivity for all sorts of electronic devices has become increasingly important. As a result, the demand for components used for wireless communication has grown significantly, among them antennas. This technical note will provide information on one commonly used antenna type, called Planar Inverted-F Antennas (usually abbreviated PIFAs) with the purpose of highlighting pros and cons of PIFAs in different applications
According to research, the demand for Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning equipment (HVAC) has increased globally during 2021.
Over the past two years, supply chain challenges have significantly complicated high-volume availability of the industry-standard 3.2 x 1.5 mm and 2.0 x 1.2 mm tuning fork quartz crystals with lower plating loads.. However, Abracons 1.6 x 1.0 x 0.5 mm ABS05 plated at 4.0pF can easily replace the larger-sized alternatives in current energy-saving MCUs and other gorilla chip set designs without sacrificing performance requirements or adding extra design pressure. It can also enable further reduction of consumed surface area in newer designs. Furthermore, designers might want to consider a comprehensive, all-encompassing land pattern in their designs.
