The feasibility of integrating antennas and required circuits to form wireless interconnects in foundry digital CMOS technologies has been demonstrated. The key challenges including the effects of metal structures associated with integrated circuits, heat removal, packaging, and interaction of transmitted and received signals with nearby circuits appear to be manageable. This technology can potentially be used for intra and inter-chip interconnection, and implementation of true single chip radios, beacons, radars, RFID tags and others, as well as contact-less high frequency testing.
