Antenna-on-Chip: Design, Challenges, and Opportunities
Hammad M. Cheema, Fatima Khalid, Atif Shamim

Antennas are an essential part of every wireless communication system. The growing trend of applications in the RF and mmWave frequency spectrums has reduced antenna sizes to only a few millimeters, thus making it practical for on-chip implementations. 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 and benefits of on-chip antenna implementation.

The book presents practical design and integration considerations of ICs and antenna combination and explains how both ends of the system can be utilized in a complementary way. It includes on-chip antenna layout considerations and layout for testability and various methods of characterization. It also includes state-of-the-art on-chip antennas in Si IC technologies and their usage in transmitter and receiver ICs followed by an end-to-end design example. The book concludes with a look at future trends and utilization of on-chip antennas for different applications.
