The integrated antenna pair gains (G a's), as a function of separations in several indoor and outdoor environments for communication over air at antenna heights above ground ranging between 4.5 cm to 85 cm, were reported. All antennas were fabricated using a single aluminum layer on a 3-μm thick oxide layer on 20-ω-cm silicon substrates with no passivation. Two mobile wafer probe stands have been constructed using Delrin which is a type of plastic, to evaluate characteristics of integrated antennas as a function of separations in realistic environments. A monolithically integrated true single chip radio (μNode) which incorporates a transceiver, a digital processor, a sensor and a power source was proposed.
