Title: Placement insensitive antenna for RFID, sensing, and/or communication systems

Abstract

An antenna includes a ground plane having a slot. The slot may be miniaturized using a meandered slot structure or other appropriate reactive loading method as an end load to one or both ends of the slot. An edge treatment may be included on one or more edges of the ground plane or a closely spaced reflecting plane. The antenna is structured to transmit or receive a signal independently or in response to electromagnetic radiation.
