TI/Chipcon CC1100 and chip antenna - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm trying to use the CC1100/CC1150 in a keyfob (keychain). Does anyone know if I need to match antennas like the Tricome chip antennas (or even a PCB trace antenna)?

Can anyone just comment on how to hook up a chip antenna to a differential output chip like the CC1100/CC1150/CC2500/CC2550? If I need to match the antenna, what is the easiest piece of equipment to do it with. I have access to just about anything.

I want to use 433MHz to get further distance than the CC2500 2.4GHz.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
