Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDC-01002
I want to setup Ref Design TIDC-01002 and my focus is to achieve the maximum distance in a free field sensor application. Several km are required. Sparse measurements ( every minute or hour, some bytes).
The above mentioned LaunchPads seem to be valid candidates for a prototype and my questions are:
- is there a difference in radio performance (maximum distance)
- is it advisable to use external antennas (rather the PCB ) and if yes which one.
