Imp recommendations please


What is the best option for best wifi reception / high gain and low power consumption?
The device will be operating on a battery and will need to hopefully get it hundreds of meters away from the AP/modem.


As in, which imp? All have pretty much the same RF performance. For maximum range you might want to use imp003 and an external high gain antenna, but this will mean re-doing certification tests.

Battery is not generally impacted much by range, ie though the PA current does increase at higher output powers used on lower bitrates (11b has a higher output power than 11g or 11n for example) the duty cycle is so low that it’s negligible.

Is this an indoor or outdoor application?
