Design of IoT Platforms with embedded antennas course in Barcelona

| News | No Comments
Barcelona, July 04, 2019 – Why IoT devices need internal antennas? Fractus Antennas (NN) has organized a one day workshop to design, build and test, with an embedded antenna, a wireless IoT prototype platform. Next October 28 in Barcelona any attendee can see Virtual Antenna™ live on Sierra Wireless and Nordic Semiconductor IoT modules and build real examples with National Instruments Microwave Office software and measure them with a R&S Vector Analyzer. The attendee will experience the latest chip antenna technology that makes any design “faster, cheaper and easier”. IoT devices need to migrate from external to internal antennas, and these different platforms have a very small size, therefore, they need a... +
