Simple Link Budget Estimation and Performance Measurements of Microchip Sub-GHz Radio Modules
The increased popularity of short range wireless in home, building and industrial applications with Sub-GHz (<1 GHz) band requires the system designers to understand the methods, estimation, cost and trade-off in short range wireless communication. Apart from considering the range estimation formula, it is good to understand the wireless channel and propagation environment involved with Sub-GHz. Generally, RF/wireless engineers perform a link budget while starting an RF design.
