About the mangOH Yellow antenna

Hi all,

This is Aurora Andújar and I have been working with Virtual Antenna™ technology for the last 12 years. I would like to help you as much as possible with the antenna integration inside your MangOH Yellow based project. My first recommendation is starting your design with the antenna. If you start by embedding the antenna you can easily optimize the antenna performance to achieve the best possible efficiency. Selecting the right placing of the antenna on the board and also the surrounding components will help in optimizing the coverage of your IoT device.

I am here to start whenever you feel like. Please post your questions here!

I’ll bite!

  1. Is there a comparison list of all the different antennas somewhere? I’ve clicked through all of the PDFs and i still don’t understand why I’d use (for example) a RUN mXTEND versus a BAR mXTEND when they both cover the same frequency.

  2. Does the DUO mXTEND actually cover frequencies up to 5Ghz? The user manual states that it is “specifically designed for providing worldwide Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and Bluetooth (BT) performance.” There are no application notes for anything such as WiFi or 3G/4G/5G.

  3. Are there CAD files for the footprints anywhere? I can only find footprints online for the TRIO mXTEND.

Thanks,
Ben
