Two methods for achieving a complete RF front end equipped with its radiator within a single chip package are presented. This packaging technique, which uses a parasitic radiator, provides an alternative solution to problems associated with reduced size electrically small antennas, such as restoration of the antenna gain to 6 dBi and increasing its bandwidth to over 4%. Several parasite configurations have been described, and sensitivity of the overall antenna performance to coupling height, parasite dimension, and position with respect to the feed antenna have been assessed. Circular polarisation of such a configuration using a truncated square parasite has also been demonstrated.
