Can you use an SMA splitter to split Bluetooth and WiFI Antenna?
I have an application that requires seperate Bluetooth and Wifi modules (esp32s), and wanted to know if it was possible to utilize a single antenna or a combination GPS and WiFi/Bluetooth antenna (since the application has a GPS module as well) and split the 2.4ghz antenna to both the Bluetooth and wifi peripherals.

I've also read that Bluetooth doesn't have any benefits from an antenna and I may not need one for it, is that true?

We do have a combination GPS and WiFi FPC antenna, however your application seems very specific, can you tell me whether you are in EMEA, Americas or Asia? I'd like to address this directly through our FAE channels to make sure you get the best possible solution as soon as possible.

Many Thanks

Hi Steve.
Thank you for your response.
This application is being developed for the Americas at the moment and in short is a heavy equipment datalogger meant for harsh environments that requires GPS, Bluetooth Communication (BLE and Classic), and Wi-Fi. As a result, the initial thought is to utilize a GPS antenna, a Wifi antenna, and a Bluetooth antenna, but packaging constraints make it more practical to utilize a combination antenna, however I don't see many that combine all three which led to me to question whether a Bluetooth antenna was beneficial or if it could be "split" between two modules (as the modules we will be utilizing can only do one or the other and not both simultaneously, therefore we will have two modules).

Thanks again.
