A design for a compact dual band very high impedance antenna for RF Harvest applications is presented. The antenna is designed to present a very high input impedance at its feed point at 900 MHz and 1.8 GHz. The design incorporates the folding concept into a customized bowtie antenna to achieve high input impedance. The design methodology and simulations are presented, as well as a comparison of the measured results against the simulation results. A rectifier circuit and dual band matching network are also simulated and presented.
