Mitigating Effects of Interference in On-Chip Antenna Measurements

Technical Publications
Thursday, August 6, 2015
Coupling a Chip Antenna to an Antenna Measurement System is typically achieved using a coplanar micro-probe. This micro-probe is attached to a probe positioner that is used to maneuver the micro-probe into position and land it on the chip. Through this process, the chip antenna is supported by a dielectric chuck. Intentional and unintentional radiation from the chip antenna will interact with the micro-probe and dielectric chuck.
