Hi Jcalvin,

Thanks for your question.
Matching component values and topology will be specific to your device, as standard we always recommend the values used for the EVB in the data sheet as a starting point.
We are always keen to engage with our customers as early as possible in their design process and would be happy to review your gerber, stack up and 3D files and advise you further, including recommendations for the best antenna for your device.

Please contact techsupport@antenova.com to get in touch with your regional sales representative who can help you with this.

Many Thanks

Steve
