A Study on Niche Antenna vs. Chip Antenna

The industry’s demand for higher efficiency with the decreased weight of wireless devices/machines pushes for the miniaturization of electronic devices coupled with reduced power consumption for wireless communication. Given the already limited real estate for the antenna design on the PCBs, engineers must design a good-performing antenna element considering several other constraints from the presence of battery, reflections from other metals, and absorption by human body tissue in the vicinity. Further, manufacturability and ease of integration also play a crucial role in determining the choice of the antenna for a product. The present study signifies the features of the Niche antenna in comparison to the commonly used chip antenna in the dual-band 2.4/5GHz WLAN spectrum.
