Matthew Meiller - “Impact of Antenna Design, Tune and Match on Wireless Range”

Wireless device range can be the pivotal make or break characteristic of a successful end product. This talk will dig into the mystery and explore the mechanisms by which wireless range can be reduced or optimized through RF and antenna design. We will also consider the impact of the loss mechanisms on data rate. The discussion is relevant to board and system- level circuit and antenna design and will focus on 2.4GHz. The useful rule of thumb that every 1dB of additional RF loss reduces wireless range by 10% is presented.
