Intel Wireless modules suitable for use with PCB antenna.

Hello.

 

I am seeking advise for suitable PCB type antenna to be used with Intel wireless modules, AC 9260 for example. I have found documents relating to the antenna connectors but have not found any documents relating to antenna selection. Ideally we would like to use something like the Molex  1461530300 flexible PCB antenna.

 

Would the Molex antenna be suitable ?

Are there any documents that would assist us with selecting suitable antenna ?

 

Thanks.

Hello BenThompson,


Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. In this case, you may find our article "Type of Wi-Fi Antenna Connectors Required for Intel® Wireless Cards" useful for the information you are looking for.

It is important for you to verify compatibility with the system manufacturer before purchasing any antenna, if a non-compatible antenna is purchased, it can cause a malfunction of the system.

Hello Josue.

 

Thanks for the link.

That shows what type of connector the antenna should have. It does not have any information about the characteristics of a suitable antenna.

We intend to use something like AC 9260 module in a device we are developing and are seeking guidance with selecting a suitable PCB type antenna to use with the module. For example would something like the Molex 1461530300 be suitable ? 

Are there any guides or documents relating to antenna selection for this module or similar modules ?

 

Thanks.

Ben.
