Is there an available module similar to X4M200 but without antenna on the PCB?

    We plan to integrate the X4M200 module into our product. Considering the radar signal quality and the product shape, the antenna should be placed outside the main shell of the product.

    So, is there an available module similar to X4M200 but without antenna on the PCB? Certainly, it should has the antenna interface.
    And I think X4M03 is not an option.

    Any other suggestion is also appreciated.

    Hi Shawn,
    The size of X4M200 is basically the size of PCB antenna (this type of antenna is built on PCB). X4M03 has a separate smaller(not significantly) antenna board X4M05 with MCU board, it should be what you expected. If X4M03 is not your option, there is no better solution by far.
    I am not sure if you have talked with sales@xethru.com, it would be better if we could learn more about your product and provide our suggestion. You mentioned that antenna should be placed outside. It is not necessary unless you use a metal shell. XeThru radar sensors have very good see-through capability, so plastic shell will not give much influence to its signal quality.
    We can have more discussion if you need.

    Can we design our own antenna and use it instead of the supplied antenna?

    Yes, it is totally possible. If you have antenna design knowledge, you can add X4SIP02 radar sub-system to your own antenna board.
