Matching RFIC Wireless Transmitters to Small Loop Antennas

  title={Matching RFIC Wireless Transmitters to Small Loop Antennas},
  author={Larry W. Burgess},
These three quantities can be derived from expressions in antenna theory textbooks [1, 2]. Note that the radiation resistance increases as the fourth power of the ratio of the loop dimension (e.g., radius) to the wavelength, which is the same as the fourth power of the loop dimension times frequency. The loss resistance, arising from the skin effect, only increases as the square root of the frequency. This means that any increase in the size of the loop, or equivalently, any increase in…
