Correct use of RF receivers
Application Notes
Correct use of RF receivers
Following are some design rules to be applied to PCB design to obtain the best performances and to keep
Certification limits out of AUREL RF Modules.
This is the typical lay out of the solder side of a PCB suited for a receiver; same rules apply for a transmitter:
Supply
Note: example pin-out.
Supply:
1. Good filtered Dc, max. tolerance ± 10%
2. Use a decoupling ceramic capacitor (10.000 pF) directly on supply pin(s).
Ground:
1. Must cover all area around the module. Circuit should be etched on two side PCB, with sides connected
every 15 mm (at least)
2. Ground must be present around the antenna output area

Application Notes
50 Ohm lines:
1. Should be as short as possible
2. Wide 1.8 mm for FR4 PCBs (1 mm thick) and 2.9 mm for FR6 (1.6 mm thick). Distance from surrounding
GND is more than 1 mm (2 mm is better).
3. On reverse side of PCB, should have a rather large GND area
Antenna connection:
1. Can be used to directly connect a radiating stylus (165 mm straight wire)
2. Can be used to connect the central conductor of a coaxial cable to remote antenna. The cable out braid
must be connected to GND near the antenna connection.
Other components:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Keep Aurel module as far as possible from other circuit components (min. 5 mm)
Keep as far as possible microprocessor and clock circuitry. Apply GND shields
Do not install components around the 50 Ohm line(s). Keep at least 10 mm clearance
If antenna is directly connected to PCB antenna connection point (see above) keep a 50 mm radius area
with no components, but adequate GND. If antenna connection point is used for coax cable connection,
it is possible to move components up to 5 mm.
