The physical size of the on-coil electronics could be one of the major obstacles in building high density RF coils. First, there is a clear mechanical desire to reduce its size in order to make the coils lighter and thinner; second, bulky electronics placed on small loops can disturb the sensitivity profile; third, for MR-PET applications the RF coils, in addition to the requirements mentioned above, have to be transparent to PET radiation. In order to achieve these critical to quality objectives we propose completely embedding all of the lumped components into a common printed circuit board (PCB).
