Abstract

This paper presents a miniaturized triangular Antenna-on-Chip (AoC) designed and fabricated on a 0.18 μm CMOS process using asymmetric rectangular artificial magnetic conductor (R-AMC). An AMC acts as a shield plane between the AoC and the lossy CMOS substrate. AoC using asymmetric R-AMC presents a smaller overall area than that of the previous reported AoC with symmetric AMCs. The triangular AoC area including the asymmetric AMC cells is only 0.81mm2 with a simulated gain of -0.2 dBi at 60 GHz. Measurements confirm the wide impedance bandwidth of the AoC.
