I dont have an antenna to work on at the moment.. I plan on designing an antenna on a test board my team is working on and also to get an existing pcb antenna from a team in SC. My Goal is to be able to use Edison to test for an antenna thourg the external u.Fl connector.....
I am interested in the functionality test for the moment. To make sure the antenna is able to transmit and receive data within the operating frequency ( in this case 2.4GHz Wifi frequency band). can Edison do that? If not what other tests can i use Edison for to test for an antenna?
Wale_Ola, hi, do a search on google for-- IPX U.fl pigtail
You can purchase very inexpensively the 2.4 Ghz antenna and a pigtail (sometimes low as $5 U.S.), from China and other distributors... also check Ebay.
I have not tested the antenna, but have no doubts it will work great! We have people putting the Edison into the air on various drones, and it needs the range booster...
