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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

NXP Makes UHF PCB Antenna Design as Easy as 1, 2, 3
- New design tool helps electronics manufacturers implement
Eindhoven, Netherlands, August 19, 2013
– Electronic equipment manufacturers wanting to embed
RFID technology in their products
are now able to do so without needing deep UHF antenna design experience
thanks to NXP Semiconductors' (NASDAQ: NXPI) new online software tool.
RFID – PCB Antenna Designer tool helps implement antennas on a printed
circuit board (PCB) in the UHF frequency range (840-960 MHz).
antenna design is more complex than a typical HF antenna design and
needs an expert understanding of the electronic design constraints.
With the RFID – PCB Antenna Designer customers can simply input parameters,
such as space available on the PCB, target performance, board materials,
and target frequency range in the region of application to receive a
turnkey UHF antenna design for their specific application. Additionally,
the tool offers a comprehensive overview of all the features of the
UCODE portfolio, enabling designers to select the right UCODE product
for their application.
RFID – PCB Antenna Designer online software tool speeds up RFID
implementation in electronics equipment:
Produced with support from leading engineering companies,
CST (Computer Simulation
Technology) and Transim,
the online design tool is available to use now:
easy UHF antenna design on PCBs
- User friendly interface helps non-RFID experts design high performance
- Customized and application-specific antenna design
The online RFID – PCB Antenna Designer tool currently supports the following
- CST develops high performance software
for the simulation of electromagnetic fields in all frequency bands
- Transim delivers innovative cloud application engineering solutions
for online design support in the electronics industry
- “For customers wanting the benefits
of using RFID technology in their products the challenge of designing
a good UHF antenna on their PCB board can often be quite daunting.
We are helping customers overcome this hurdle with our latest online
offering, the RFID – PCB Antenna Designer tool. Created to ease
design problems, the tool delivers a full turnkey UHF antenna solution
quickly with an outstanding level of performance,” said Mohammed
Chemloul, customer application support (CAS) manager, business unit
Identification, NXP Semiconductors.
