As paging products decrease in size, it becomes increasingly difficult to satisfy all of the radio design criteria since physical size is often an important design parameter. When designing a radio receiver for example, one of the most critical and challenging components to develop is the antenna. Common loop antennas need to enclose as great an area as possible for peak performance. Unfortunately, antennas are typically allocated a limited and often insufficient portion of the product's volume. This directly impacts the radio's sensitivity.
