Is it possible for the antenna and matching to be on different sides of the PCB ?

We have a couple of options re placement of the antenna – basically on either side of the PCB.

Say for the Lucida SR4L002, or the Inversa SR4L034 devices.

I appreciate the preference is to have the matching components on the same side as the antenna, as shown in application notes etc., however is it feasible to place the antenna on the other side to the matching components ?

 

If so are there any design guidelines, and / or are there any components that must be the same side as the antenna ?

 

Just looking to confirm what the feasible options are ?

 

Kind regards,

Mark.
