Abstract

The integration of a CMOS power amplifier (PA) and antenna in printed circuit-board (PCB) technology is investigated. Both the PA and the antenna have a differential design to provide a reliable low-loss interconnect. A PCB package is proposed that enables the implementation of a high-efficiency antenna while providing mechanical rigidity. The interconnection between the PA and the antenna is realised with flip-chip technology. The performance of the package is demonstrated with measurements of the realised antenna gain and radiation patterns.
