Arguably the most-asked query we obtain from Blues prospects is: “So…which antenna do you suggest I take advantage of?” For higher or worse, this query can be the one that may be probably the most tough to reply. Our response is determined by a handful of things when crafting the best suggestion for a given IoT deployment, akin to:
- What’s the bodily enclosure of the system you’re constructing?
- In what kind of surroundings will it’s deployed?
- Which international geographic area (or areas) are you focusing on?
- Will the system be in movement? Are you gathering location knowledge in an asset monitoring state of affairs?
- Are you using Mobile? LoRa? Wi-Fi? Or do you propose on utilizing a mixture…or all the above?
For instance, when Blues designed a brand new model of the Blues Notecarrier A, our first cease for onboard PCB antennas was Ignion, the maker of a singular omni-directional PCB antenna element and a revolutionary cloud-based antenna design software, who additionally share our mission of constructing issues straightforward for our prospects. Ignion supplied Blues with the best mixture of efficient and reasonably priced design instruments and implementation capability for an omni-directional antenna that works throughout NB-IoT, LTE Cat-1, and Cat-M mobile protocols.
Because the creation of the Notecarrier A, Blues hasn’t regarded again. Blues is ALSO utilizing an Ignion Wi-Fi antenna on the brand new Notecard Cell+WiFi system on module! Subsequent up, we’d wish to collectively share our classes discovered with you, together with key insights from Ignion, and an enticing story from MassMelt, a mutual buyer of each Blues and Ignion!
On this webinar on Tuesday, December fifth, be a part of the specialists from Blues, Ignion, and MassMelt as we assist information you in choosing the proper PCB antenna for no matter IoT product you may dream up (or are within the technique of designing!). If you happen to can’t make it, register anyway and we’ll ship you the recording.
