RF Antenna Testing

The trade offs between range, responsiveness, and battery life lie at the heart of many IoT development projects. Understand the impacts of these decisions by analyzing how the antenna used can affect the relationship between radio power and range. Characterise antenna sets for VSWR conduct experiments using 2.4 GHz Bluetooth Low Energy signals.

How do you select the best antennas for an IoT application? We consider frequency response, VSWR, and range as key characteristics that help us to understand an antenna’s suitability and its effect on a device’s overall power usage.
