Artech House announced the publication of Antenna-on-Chip: Design, Challenges, and Opportunities by Hammad M. Cheema, Fatima Khalid and Atif Shamim. Antennas are essential part of every wireless communication system. The increasing trend of applications in the RF and mmWave 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.
Antenna-on-Chip: Design, Challenges, and Opportunities is available now from Artech House, a leading publisher of books for professionals in high-technology industries.
