Hi All,

I have problem with my 315Mhz SAW based transmitter if the battery is mounted at the backside underneath of the transmitter circuit. It's transmission power will attenuated at large size around -2dBm down to -40dBm.

Do you have any experience on this problem? You know it's quite headache, since I been using many types of battery sheilding material and ferrite beads, filters caps...still doesn't work!

Anybody there please help..thanks!

:shock:

Could the battery be heating the SAW and causing a frequency drift? How big is the bandwidth?

You could quickly cross check the frequency drift due to temperature by operating the transmitter without mounting the battery on the same chassis as the transmitter

thank you!

i found the problem and was caused by de-tuning the antenna since its very close beneath when a coin battery is mounted. am using a fixed wire type awg#30 monopole antenna.

by the way, i would like to change the antenna to a pcb loop trace type. do you any information about this on how to design? please help. thank you!

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 ...
