Hi 

The customer is considering to use [CYBT-343026-01] module.

They want to talk about the following two points around the antenna designe.

1. Could you give them some advice when measureing the antenna characteristics(when assembled in a housing),

and the antenna around the design stage?

2. Previously, when using another company's module,

the module manufacturer sent the CAD data of the housing and gave some advice to customer.

In addition, the antenna characteristics were also measured while actually being incorporated into the product.

Is it possible to do the same thing with Cypress or some other company?

Thanks

Yang

1) Measuring antenna characteristics is beyond the scope of this forum. However from experience in IoT products, antenna performance will

be affected by (a) metallic housing, and (b) hands (e.g. remote control). Otherwise, always try to position the module in a corner with the

antenna main beam "pointing" away from the host PCB.

2) Page 6 and 7 of the module datasheet suggested some guidelines on the PCB layout.

Dear Thread Author,

For more further discussion, it would be better to contact to Cypress local sales representative and/or local FAE.

If you don't need any further technical support for this thread, please let us know.

Thank you.
