I’m designing a Z-Wave 700 Slave or Controller Device. What is the recommendation on antenna design and the use of SAW filters?
For Z-Wave gateways (outside EU freq.) with LTE embedded, it is recommended to analyze the specific need for a SAW filter in depth. Optionally, a SAW filter bank can be added and controlled via the SAW0 and SAW1 output pins for operation in different regions.
The UZB7 Controller Reference Design can be found as part of the Z-Wave 700 SDK Documentation. After the SDK is downloaded through Simplicity Studio, the documents can be found here:
UZB7 reference design and Antenna guidelines can be found in these documents:
