Silicon Labs: Miniaturizing IoT Designs

December 01, 2016 // By Tom Nordman, Pasi Rahikkala
Make it small, make it fast, make it first. As we wirelessly connect more and more devices to the Internet, electronics engineers face several challenges, including packaging a radio transmitter into existing device real estate and the demand to build increasingly smaller devices. This white paper explores some of the obstacles that come with the size expectations of IoT designs, from concerns around antenna integration to new packaging options that can help solve issues like detuning and size limitations.
