The development of wireless technology has enabled the rapid explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT).  Before an IoT end-product can be launched into the market, it needs to successfully go through multiple levels of complex certification approval processes to certify the product is in compliance with government regulations and industry standards; safe to use; and is interoperable with other devices on the network. Certification approval processes can be time consuming and costly, and failure to pass leads to longer product development time, higher cost, and further delay of market launch. 


Antennas are one of the most essential parts of a wireless IoT device and the antenna’s performance is critical to the success of product certification approval. Having a thorough understanding of the certification approval tests on the radiation performance of the wireless device helps in selecting or custom designing the right antenna to meet the required radiation performance and, ultimately, the success of product certification. 

This paper provides:

  • An overview of the complexity of the multiple levels of wireless product certifications 
  • How antenna performance requirements are decided by the regulatory restrictions and industry standards
  • Examples demonstrating how to design or select an antenna to meet the restrictions and requirements for product certification 
  • The value of partnering with TE early in the design phase
