Online UHF PCB antenna design tool
The RFID – PCB Antenna Designer tool helps implement antennas on a printed circuit board (PCB) in the UHF frequency range (840 to 960 MHz).
UHF antenna design is more complex than a typical HF antenna design and needs an expert understanding of the electronic design constraints. With the RFID – PCB Antenna Designer customers can simply input parameters, such as space available on the PCB, target performance, board materials, and target frequency range in the region of application to receive a turnkey UHF antenna design for their specific application. Additionally, the tool offers a comprehensive overview of all the features of the UCODE portfolio, enabling designers to select the right UCODE product for their application.
“For customers wanting the benefits of using RFID technology in their products the challenge of designing a good UHF antenna on their PCB board can often be quite daunting. We are helping customers overcome this hurdle with our latest online offering, the RFID – PCB Antenna Designer tool. Created to ease design problems, the tool delivers a full turnkey UHF antenna solution quickly with an outstanding level of performance,” said Mohammed Chemloul, customer application support (CAS) manager, business unit Identification, NXP Semiconductors.
RFID – PCB Antenna Designer online software tool speeds up RFID implementation in electronics equipment. It enables easy UHF antenna design on PCBs, features a user friendly interface that helps non-RFID experts design high performance antennas and supports customized and application-specific antenna design.
Produced with support from leading engineering companies, CST (Computer Simulation Technology) and Transim, the online design tool is available to use now.
The online RFID – PCB Antenna Designer tool currently supports the following packages: UCODE I2C in SOT902 package; UCODE G2iL in SOT886 package; and UCODE G2iM in SOT886 package.
