Unsolved

Hi team,

I'm curious to know thoughts here - the module has two onboard Murata SWD Series, p/n: MM8430-2610RA1 and two fractal PCB antennas. When i finally receive my dev units i'd like to try a combination of one PCB antenna and one external antenna placed orthoganlly to the PCB antenna.

 

Questions:

  1. Has anyone tried this?
    1. If so - any interesting peformance gains?
    2. How is the antenna switching handled?
  2. Does ANYONE know where the mating connector to the Murata SWD Series, p/n: MM8430-2610RA1  can be sourced in quantities of less than 10k? Ideally with an appropriate PCB antenna/coax combination.

Thanks all!

James.
