The only approved and certified antenna solution is the one provided with the development kit .
Changing the antenna voids any regulatory certifications achieved by the shipping configuration .
> 15 dB
Envelope correlation coefficient
> 50% (-3 dB)
Easy to implement Quick time-to-market
Material and assembly costs Medium performance
PCB monopole antenna
No component and replacement costs Quarter wave monopole has a theoretical gain of ~5.15 dBi Good performance
Medium level of layout skills needed Matching circuit recommended
PCB dipole antenna
No component and replacement costs Half-wave dipole has a theoretical gain of ~2.15 dBi Good performance
Medium level of layout skills needed Matching circuit recommended Larger footprint than chip and monopole solutions
