This paper addresses the design and performance of an on-chip miniaturized monopole planar antenna designed to radiate directly from the silicon die. The antenna is designed for co-integration with CMOS impulse radio ultra wideband (IRUWB) pulse generator (6-10GHz) which is designed using 90nm CMOS technology. The results have proved the viability of planar antennas on silicon and can lead to the fabrication of highly efficient RF circuits. The designed antenna supports communication between 8.4-10.4GHz with |S11|<;-10dB and gain of -14 dBi. Antenna is simulated in CST (Computer Simulation Technology).
