I'm trying to use a monopole chip antenna on a PCB much smaller than the one recommended in the datasheet. I am wondering if I can get away with a much smaller board by using two monopole antennas driven in a balanced dipole configuration as depicted below.
Is there any benefit to using chip antennas in this way or am I better off just using a single antenna and trying to tune it for the smaller board somehow?
This is the antenna in question: Yageo 433MHz chip antenna
Instead of the layout in the datasheet
