Mouser will host a free webinar to assist hardware engineers in developing antenna solutions for increasingly compact IoT and smart devices. The company has partnered with Amphenol RF for the 'RF Antenna Solutions for IoT Devices and Smart Technology' webinar, which will take place on 5 December at 3pm CET.
"IoT devices have become prolific with the rise of smart technology, but the evolving design restrictions posed by compact devices can pose a significant challenge for designers," says Mark Patrick, director technical content, EMEA at Mouser Electronics. "At Mouser, we continue to be at the forefront of supporting IoT innovators by providing them with practical tips to optimise their designs."
Participants in this webinar will learn about the various RF antenna solutions obtainable for emerging IoT applications and how internal and external antennas can be included in devices with limited space and other design restrictions.
Amphenol RF has a wide range of antenna solutions available for IoT applications, including internal embedded chip antennas designed for use inside connected devices; external antennas supporting up to 5000VDC voltage and providing excellent electrical performance up to 500MHz; FPC and PCB antennas provided with secure adhesive-mount backing for easy installation; and internal NFC antennas designed to support NFC-Forum wireless protocols.
These antennas can solve specific design challenges, such as mounting, size restrictions, frequency range and data transmission capabilities. During the webinar, Mike Comer, director of Product Marketing and Business Development at Amphenol RF, will advise participants on selecting the best option for their projects. He will also examine the different protocols that can be used to optimise the particular usage of individual antenna types.
