An "F-gain" antenna for UWB-RFID


This paper presents an UWB antenna concept adapted for a potential application of RFID in a severe multi-paths environment for European regulation (UWB-LDR 6 - 8.5 GHz). The UWB provides theoretically the signal integrity and designing the UWB antenna is compatible with low size, cost and low complexity consideration. Under the hypothesis of using the same antenna at both transmitting or receiving states, the 1/f2 effect of free space attenuation can be minimised by a pre-emphasis included in the antenna design, that is to say an "f-gain" antennas at both transmitting (Tx) and receiving (Rx) parts. As a result, the printed antennas described are neither constant aperture nor constant gain type
