  • Patent number: 10333198
    Abstract: An antenna apparatus includes a conductive radiating element, a conductive member, and a first impedance circuit. The first impedance circuit includes a first parallel resonant circuit (an LC parallel resonant circuit) and is directly connected between the radiating element and the conductive member (the conductor plate). Since the first parallel resonant circuit has high impedance in its resonant frequency band and is equivalently in an open state, one end of the radiating element is opened in the resonant frequency band. Accordingly, the radiating element defines and functions as a standing-wave antenna that contributes to electric-field radiation and a loop portion including the radiating element, the conductive member, and the first impedance circuit defines and functions as a magnetic-field radiation antenna that contributes to magnetic-field radiation.

  • Patent number: 10164347
    Abstract: An antenna device includes a plurality of coil antennas each including a coil conductor wound around a winding axis and a planar conductor including a first edge and a second edge between which a corner or a curved portion is interposed. A first coil antenna is arranged at a position along the first edge of the planar conductor at which one coil opening thereof is superposed with the planar conductor when viewed in plan and that is close to the corner or close to the curved portion. A second coil antenna is arranged at a position along the second edge of the planar conductor at which one coil opening thereof is superposed with the planar conductor when viewed in plan. The first coil antenna and the second coil antenna are connected such that magnetic flux generated by the first coil antenna and magnetic flux generated by the second coil antenna are in phase with each other in a direction toward the outside with the first edge and the second edge of the planar conductor defining boundaries.
