Mission impossible

How can an embedded antenna perform brilliantly within an IoT device with a very small PCB?

How well can an embedded antenna perform on a tiny PCB?

The laws of physics could be preventing your connected devices from operating effectively. With the interest in technologies like Narrowband-IoT, how can designers ensure a device performs well with a small circuit board and minimal power consumption.
