RECEIVING LOOP ANTENNA SYSTEM BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION:

The present invention relates to generally a receiving loop antenna, and more particularly a receiving loop antenna especially adapted for use as a built-in antenna of a portable or small-sized wireless set.

In general, the small-sized portable wireless sets of the hand carried type, the pocket size type, or those generally carried on backs of the operators, have a built-in antenna such as a quarter-wavelength whip antenna, a dipole antenna or fernte antenna. However, when the whip or dipole antenna, which is of the electric field type, is brought to close to or into contact with the body of the user, the antenna efficiency suddenly drops because of the considerable decrease in the intensity of the electric field around the human body. Theferrite antenna which is of the magnetic field type has an advantage over the whip or dipole antenna inthat the magnetic field is intensified around the human body, but it still has a defect that the loss within a ferrite core is so increased'as the operating frequency is increased.

In order to overcome the above inherent defects, the inventors made extensive studies and experiments and succeeded in providing an improved built-in loop an- SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The primary object of the present invention is therefore to provide an improved receiving loop antenna especially adapted for use as a built-in antenna of a portable wireless set and capable of considerably improving the signal-to-noise ratio, S/N, of the wireless set.

In this invention a loop antenna is provided in one wall of the wireless set, which wall is to be in a position perpendicular to human body when put in the pocket of the operator where it is influenced by the high intensity of magnetic field component provided by the human body. The other wall perpendicular to the wall having the loop antenna of the wireless set case is provided with a grounding plate, and the grounding plate and the loop antenna form an asymmetrical dipole antenna, which antenna has a reasonable sensitivity to the electric field component. A circuit having series resonant circuit characteristics and a transmission line are coupled with the loop antenna, and the small loop antenna characteristics and the input impedance-noise figure characteristics are combined, and the decrease of receiving range by the reduction of antenna size is complemented. Thus, the optimum noise matching is obtained.

Briefly stated, in accordance with the present invention, the antenna output terminals are tapped on the loop antenna at the points that the impedance thereof may enable the wireless set connected thereto to give the maximum output power (the above impedance being defined as the power matching impedance hereinafter in this specificiation). Between the antenna and power matching are combined.

output terminals and the input terminals of the wireless set is inserted'a circuit having a series resonant circuit characteristic andtransmi ssion lines connected in series with the circuit and having lengths such that the impedance matching (to be referred to as the noise matching hereinafter in'this specification) at which the noise at or in the proxim ity of the center frequency of the frequency band of the series resonant circuit may be minimized, may be attained.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION 'QFTHE PREFERRED PRIOR ART, FIGs. 1,2 and 3 Prior to the description of the preferred embodiment of the present invention,'some prior aItantennas will be briefly described in order to' more specifically point 1 out the defects and problems thereof which the present I invention may substantially eliminate In general, theperipheral length of a built-in loop an tenna of a compact wireless set is considerably smaller than the wavelength used 'so that it may be treated as a small loop antenna in analyses. The radiation resistance R, of a small loop antenna with across sectional area A is in inverse proportion to the fourth power of the wavelength M, as shown in the following relation:

equal to the velocity of light, f is equal to MHz and the dimension of'the loop antenna is7"7 .X 12.5 mm the radiation resistance R, is 0.002 h'rns.

FIGs. 2A and 3A'are circuit idiagramsjfof int; art' Therefore, the loop antenna having such a low radiation resistance cannot be used with the wireless set because the mismatching loss becomes intolerably high.

In order to overcome this inherent defect, there have been devised and demonstrated various loop antennas such as those shown in FIGS. 2 and 3.

In a loop antenna 1 of the type shown in FIG. 2A, a variable capacitor 2 with a capacitance C is inserted for tuning, and output terminals b and care spaced apart from each other by a distance S so as to match the impedance of the loop antenna 1 with the input impedance of the wireless set. The equivalent circuit of the loop antenna 1 is shown in FIG. 23, wherein L, and L self-inductances of the sections between b and c and between a and c, respectively;

M mutual inductance between the above two sec- 7 tions; and

C tuning capacitance.

The impedance Z,-,, of the loop antenna 1 looking back from the terminals b and c into it is given by resonance 0 r ll] resonance In summary, as is clear from Eq. (2), the inductances L, and L and the mutual inductance M may be varied by changing the tapping position of the terminal c so that the input impedance Z, may be so varied as to match with the load impedance Z, in a relatively simple manner. That is, the inductance of the loop antenna itself is utilized to match the input impedance thereof.

In a loop antenna of the type shown in FIG. 3A, two capacitors C, and C are inserted in order to attain the impedance matching. The equivalent circuit is shown in FIG. 3B. The capacitors C, and C are connected in sereis for tuning, and one output terminal b is the junction between the capacitors C, and C, while the other output terminal c, the other terminal of the capacitor C The input impedance Z,-,, at a resonant frequency is given by n H l/( 1+ C0]2 resonance where C, and C are capacitances of the capacitors C,

and C respectively.

Therefore, it is seen that the input impedance 2,, may be changed by changing the capacitances C, and C The impedance matching between the loop antenna and the wireless set may be attained in the manners described above, but when the antenna loss is considerably greater, the signal-to-noise ratio, S/N, of the wireless set must be taken into consideration. That is, the antenna for the wireless set must be so designed that not only the impedance matching may be attained but also S/N in the wireless set may become maximum.

THE INVENTION The antenna impedance must be so selected that the noise figure in the input circuit of the wireless set may be minimized over a wide range of frequencies. For this purpose, it is imperative that the prior art antenna whose impedance may be adjusted in the manner described above be so improved as to be connected to the input terminals of the wireless set through circuit having L-C series resonant circuit characteristics and through a transmission lines having lengths I.

Now referring to FIG. 4 illustrating a preferred embodiment of the present invention, a series resonant circuit X consisting of a capacitor C and an inductor L has its one end connected to one antenna output terminal c. and the other end d connected to one input terminal f of the wireless set through a transmission 1, line having a length l.

The impedances of the antenna system of the present invention are shown in the Smith chart in FIG. 5. In general, the power matching impedance for maximum power transfer is different from an impedance capable of attaining the noise matching. In general, the input impedance of the wireless set is 50 or ohms.

It is assumed that the noise figure or factor becomes minimum F when 2; is equal to (R =jX Then, it becomes higher as the impedance deviates from Z,- as indicated by the chain circles in the Smith chart in FIG. 5, wherein the impedance Z is the normalized impedance of the Smith chart and is the input impedance the wireless set.

When 2,, is a pure resistance which gives the miximum power transfer, the capacitance of the capacitor 2 (see FIG. 4) is so selected that the antenna may be tuned to a frequency f,. The output terminal c is so tapped that the impedance Z, of the loop antenna looking back from the terminals b and c into the loop antenna may satisfy the following relation:

w= [LI( O 1 MVLI2 The frequency characteristic curve at Z over a frequency range from f, to f,,- is indicated by the curve (a) in the Simth chart in FIG. 5.

Standing wave ratio S which defines the relation between the pure resistance Z and the impedance Z which gives the noise matching in the wireless set is:

s= [1 m 1/ [l '|r|]=[l (Z -Z (z RH] -I( F R) (Zr'l' 2m 1 (7) Therefore, the resistance component R, that is a point at which one standing-wave -ratio circle intersects the real axis of the Smith chart, is given by The resistance component of the input impedance of the loop antenna becomes Z /S at the frequencies f and f, on the curve (a) in FIG. 5. At f and f the impedances are At f which is lower than the resonant frequency f,, the reactance component is an inductance component but at f which is higher than the resonant frequency f,, it is a capacitance component.

The series resonant circuit X inserted between the terminals 0 and d (or between the terminals b and c and the terminals d and e) is tuned to the resonant frequencyf At the resonant frequency the impedance of the tuning circuit X is zero. At a frequency lower than the resonant frequency the tuning circuit X exhibits capacitance while at a frequency higher than the resonant frequency, it exhibits inductance. The impedance is so selected as to satisfy the following relations at the resonant frequency f,, at a frequency f lower than the resonant frequency and at the frequency f higher than the resonant frequency.

2 at f, z jX at f2 Z=+jX atf Therefore, the frequency characteristics at 2, the impedance looking back from the terminals d and e are shown by the curve (b) in FIG. 5, which intersects at f and f The length l of the transmission line I, having the characteristic impedance equal to the reference impedance Z is so selected as to satisfy the following relawhere B is a constant.

Therefore the impedance Z looking back from the terminals f and 3 into the network is given by 1-11 ZR [(Zw j R B n j d-e B H The curve (c) in FIG. 5 shows the frequency characteristic curve at Z Thus, the satisfactory noise matching may be attained at f and f with the result of the optimum S/N, and the power matching may be attained at f,, resonant frequency.

In FIG. 6, the solid curve shows the signal-to-noise ratio at the output terminals of the wireless set connected to the prior art antenna which was designed only to attain the impedance matching as described above and whose frequency characteristic curve is shown at (a) in the Smith chart in FIG. 5. The broken curve line shows the S/N of the wireless set connected to the loop antenna in accordance with the present invention whose impedance characteristic is indicated by the curve (c) in the Smith chart in FIG. 5. It is apparent that the signal-to-noise ratio, S/N, is considerably improved over the wide frequency range by the antenna system in accordance with the present invention.

FIG. 7 shows the antenna system in accordance with the present invention attached to a portable wireless set. The loop antenna 1 is attached to one side wall 5 of the wireless set which is substantially perpendicular to the body of an operator, and a grounding plate 6 is attached to another side wall 5a perpendicular to the antenna mounting side wall 5. The antenna system in accordance with the present invention includes the capacitor 2, the series tuning circuit 3, and the transmission line 4, as described hereinbefore.

The simplest series resonant circuit may be constructed, as shown in FIGS. 4 and 7, by an impedance element and a capacitive element connected in series; however another circuit having a similar frequency characteristics as this circuit can also show similar features.

FIG. 8 shows the second embodiment of this invention. In this embodiment two parallel resonant circuits which resonate at desired frequency ranges are connected between the grounding plate and the both ends of the series resonant circuit. The parallel resonant circuits consist of an inductor L and a capacitor C respectively. This parallel resonant circuit has a high resonant impedance in receiving frequency range; this is the reason the circuit has the same characteristics as that of L-C series resonant circuit. Outside of the receiving frequency range the impedance becomes low. This characteristic is useful for the attenuation of frequency components outside of the receiving frequency range. This is also useful for the improvement of spurious characteristics.

In the third embodiment of this invention shown in FIG. 9, the loop antenna and the series resonant circuit are coupled through an impedance conversion transformer T. This will broaden the variable range in impedance range of series resonant circuit.
