folded dipole antenna

folded dipole antenna

An antenna composed of two parallel, closely spaced dipole antennae connected at their ends, with one fed at its center. The folded dipole antenna is the same size, and has the same radiation pattern, as an ordinary dipole antenna, but the feed-point impedance is four times as large. See dipole antenna.

Each receiver employs the direct-conversion architecture consisting of an on-chip slot folded dipole antenna, an SPDT switch, a low noise amplifier, a single-balanced mixer, an injection-locked frequency tripler (ILFT), an IF variable gain amplifier, a power detector, an active bandpass filter and a synchronous demodulator.
