Talk Abstract: That all-in-one radio IC data sheet says , “No RF experience required”. But is it true?
There are a host of things that one needs to understand when designing a wireless product.
The most important of these is making (or keeping) the product legal to sell. Then comes
performance. Poor wireless performance results in product support calls which will destroy
your profit margin and/or create many unhappy customers. In these days of high competition
and social media poorly performing products are a sure way to a quick product death.

This seminar will cover the essential things you need to address in order to create a high quality
wireless product including:
1. Factors affecting radio performance
2. Regulatory requirements
3. Radio transmission basics
4. Making your product testable
5. RF issues you need to address
6. Ways to improve system availability and performance
7. Things to watch out for when using approved wireless modules.
