QUESTION

asked by
Please can you provide the datasheet for the M20047-EVB-1?
Please can you provide the datasheet for the M20047-EVB-1, not the M20047-1 antenna, but the evaluation board. We need to ascertain if we can use the eval board for our evaluation, or if we need to design our own.

Thank you

John

Hi John,

We do not have a datasheet for our EVB.  What information can I send you?

Best regards,

Hi Geoff,

As circuit diagram would be sufficient for now, thanks.

Hi John,

I can't send you a circuit diagram, but the RF side of the module is shown in the datasheet.  The rest of the circuit from the USB connector to the RF feed trace is a DC-to-DC converter from 5VDC to 3.3VDC, a battery switch (via moving a 0-ohm resistor) to select either USB or battery option and an LED to show that there is power to the module.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Hi Geoff,

That's rather disappointing. Instead then, can I assume that the circuit configuration of the antenna interface on the evaluation board is the same as the "Application circuit" in the M20047 datasheet "M20047-1_PS_Apr2018" page 8? If so, what are the calculation equations for the values of R1 and L2 of that circuit ?

Also, please can we request a sample of the M29947-EVB-1 for evaluation?

Best regards

John

Hi John,

Yes, all of the values are the same as shown in our data sheet.  R1 and L2 values are determined using a network analyzer and are tuned for the environment that the module is designed into. We offer services to help you tune our antenna in your device.  If you are interested in utilizing our service and to request an evaluation board please contact our sales support at sales@antenova.com.

Best regards,

Thanks Geoff,

Understood.

Don't worry about the sample eval board - we already have one on its way overnight from Mouser UK.

Best regards
