Title: Add external antenna
Post by: tr3nt on April 22, 2016, 07:24:34 pm
Hi everybody,

I wanted to add an external antenna to the RT5350F module. Which kind of connector I should buy?
Is there any photo or video in order to see how to solder it properly?

Thank you.

We have placed a ipex MHF connector on the board.

You see we have cut through the two lines from the antenna.
