A differential amplifier feeding a balanced antenna is investigated experimentally. This approach would suit modern RFIC design rather than using a 50Ω unbalanced connection. As such the balun or power-combining network is eliminated resulting in a compact RF front-end design with wider bandwidth and lower losses. Experimental result shows that this technique promises higher output power compared to conventional feeding approach while using same RFIC and same power supply.
