Antennas are essential part of every wireless communication system. The increasing trend of applications in the radio frequency (RF) and millimeter wave frequency spectrum has reduced the antenna sizes to only a few millimeters, which makes it practical for on-chip implementations. Integrated Circuit (IC) designers who have traditionally remained isolated from antenna design now need to understand its design process and trade-offs. This comprehensive resource addresses the challenges, benefits and trade-offs of on-chip antenna implementation.


It presents practical design and integration considerations of the IC and antenna combination and how both ends of the system can be utilized in a complimentary way. The book includes on-chip antenna layout considerations, layout for testability and various methods of their characterization. It also includes the state-of-the-art on-chip antennas in III-V and Silicon IC technologies and their usage in transmitter and receiver ICs. A look at the future trends and utilization of on-chip antennas for different applications concludes the book.

Introduction; Why On-Chip Antennas?; On-Chip Antenna Implementation Challenges; On-Chip Antenna Implementations: State of the Art; Co-Design of On-Chip Antenna with Transmitter and Receiver Circuits; Future Applications and Design Trends; Conclusions.
