The space-filling fractal geometry of the Hilbert curve is examined in terms of its effectiveness in lowering resonant frequency. It is demonstrated that the complex geometry associated with the space-filling Hilbert fractal curve is inherently ineffective in lowering resonant frequency compared to other less complex geometries of the same size and total wire length. The effectiveness of the geometry in lowering resonant frequency is a direct function of the current vector alignment established by the wire layout.
