Raspberry Pi Compute module Antenna Kit

Raspberry Pi foundation came up with its new device Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 Antenna Kit. The Antenna Kit is developed and certified specifically for Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. It helps the user to get a better range of the signals that make the device efficient. If the user keeps the Compute Module4 in an enclosed system then by the use of the Antenna, one can get a better range of the signals.  

Specifications of Compute Module 4 Antenna Kit

There is a vast majority of customers that are interested in the Compute Module 4 Antenna kit for a better network. The following specifications of the Commute Module 4 Antenna Kit are attracting the people

  • It has a working frequency range of 2400-2500/5100-5800 MHz that provides a significant range to perform the task efficiently. 
  • The working bandwidth of the Commute Module 4 Antenna Kit is 100–700MHz which means that the Antenna can work correctly in this range of frequency.
  • The VSWR or Voltage Standing Wave Ratio of the Compute Module 4 Antenna Kit is  ≤ 2.0. VSWR is a measure of the transmission efficiency of the radio frequency from a power source, via a transmission line, into a load. 
  • The power gain or gain of the Compute Module 4 Antenna Kit is 2 dBi which is a key performance number that combines the electrical efficiency and directivity of the Antenna. 
  • The impedance of the Antenna is 50 ohm which represents the power that is either radiated away or absorbed within the antenna.
  • The Polarization of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 Antenna is vertical. 
  • The Radiation is omnidirectional. 
  • Raspberry Pi developed the Compute Module 4 Antenna on 10 W power. 
  • The dimensions of the Antenna are 108mm × 10mm.

How to fit the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 Antenna Kit?

  1. Firstly connect the MHF1 connector on the cable to the MHF connector on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4.
  2. Now the user needs to screw the toothed washer on to the SMA(male) on the cable. After this insert the SMA connector through a hole in the end-product mounting panel.
  3. Now place the SMA connector on the place by screwing it with the nut and washer.
  4. Now Screw the SMA (female) connector on the SMA (male) connector which now sticks out through the mounting panel.
  5. Now place the Antenna on the right angle(up to 90°).
