Silicon Labs provides RF range calculators for customers to help estimating the actual range of their wireless applications. Simple RF Range Calculator is available to download from the following link below.
Conducted TX output power: the power driven to the antenna input [dBm]
TX antenna gain [dBi]
Conducted receiver sensitivity [dBm]
RX antenna gain [dBi]
Propagation factor (depends on the environment)
Simple RF Range Calculator
Simple RF Range Calculator is for those customers who don’t want to deal with difficult RF questions, just simply would like to get fast and reasonable results for both outdoor and indoor environments.
Fast and simple while accurate
Built in propagation factors, based on field measurements
Antenna height fixed to 1 to 1.2 meters
Supports all the unlicensed bands and custom frequency channels as well
Simple RF Range Calculator provides fast and accurate result as the customer selected the frequency band and set TX and RX parameters.
Frequency bands and custom frequency channels can also be selected.
TX Output Power and RX Sensitivity need to set up based on the radio device’s actual link parameters based on the data sheet.
If the exact antenna parameters are unknown notes at the right side can help to determine the closest values.
