Resources for IoT Designers

When an IoT device is being designed, it’s important to consider the antenna in relation to the housing and environment. It can seem intimidating, but antenna design doesn’t need to be daunting. With the large increase of wireless IoT devices connecting our world, understanding IoT antenna design is even more important than ever. That’s why we gathered some of our best resources for IoT designers ranging from application notes to eBooks from Microwave Journal.


We understand that many people designing IoT devices may have no background in RF and microwave engineering. For those people, we recommend using our IoTest Kit that is created specifically for non-RF engineers. The reliability of an IoT device depends on the performance of its antenna. IoTest Antenna Testing Kit helps designers of IoT devices select and test the right antenna for their project. In IoT design form factor is critical, and space is at a premium. The R60 Antenna Analyzer simplifies the complex measurements that must be performed to determine whether the antenna is right for your device. It allows you to measure the most critical parameter – the Return Loss of your antenna. IoTest has been developed in collaboration with PulseLarsen Antennas. PulseLarsen Antennas backs the IoTest Kit with its years of antenna design and manufacturing expertise.
