Resources and Going Further

We hope you have fun experimenting with your chip antennas. We find the variance in design and geometries fascinating as is the art of antenna design. Remember, all our designs are open source so you are welcome to use the footprints and layouts from our board in your own design. That’s the real power of this eval board - try out various antennas and if you like one you can implement it in your own tiny GPS receiver design!
