Maximizing the range of Wireless USB

Last Updated: September 20, 2011

What are some of the things to consider when maximizing the range of WirelessUSB?


In general the following areas of design need special attention to detail:

    • Maximize the achievable receive sensitivity of the Radio

    • Maximize the achievable transmit power of the Radio

    • Minimize the controllable path loss in the operating environment

General notes: The following items should serve as a checklist for the details mentioned above:

    • Tuning crystals

    • Using the highest supply voltage specification

    • Minimizing supply voltage noise

    • Maximizing antenna performance (type, orientation, and matching network)

    • Optimizing printed circuit board layout and design

    • Utilizing advanced protocol techniques (2-Way protocol)

    • Maximizing transmit power

    • Minimizing path loss
