TI/Chipcon CC1100 and chip antenna - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the 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)? http://www.tricome.com/Products/Product_01.asp

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.
