Title: Balanced antenna structure for bluetooth 2.4 GHz physical region semiconductor integrated circuit

Abstract: An antenna assembly and methods of use are disclosed. In one embodiment, the antenna assembly is formed on a substrate and includes a first metal region and a second metal region attached to a surface of the substrate. The second metal region may be separated from the first metal region by a gap. The second metal region may include a first pronged end and a second end that correspond, respectively, to a first pronged end and a second end of the first metal region. The pronged ends of each metal region are connected to the differential inputs and outputs of a transceiver coupled with the antenna assembly.
