Abstract

Active integrated antennas offer potential low cost and compact solutions which may be useful in a number of mass market applications such as short range microwave and millimetre wave communications and telematics, including vehicle communications and sensors. Some novel configurations developed at The University of Birmingham are presented. These include a frequency doubling transponder, patch oscillators, an on-glass slot oscillator and an integrated circulator antenna. The problems with nonlinearities including out-of-band emissions and examples of the analytic and experimental approaches to them are also discussed. In addition we also present recent results for finite difference-time domain simulations that include antenna and device models
