This paper shows the possibility of two-dimensional
communication between electronic devices by using only one
conductive surface. An analysis of the expected magnitude of the
signal at the reception point as a function of distance and
electrical parameters of the conductive surface is presented.
Measurements on surfaces from 0.4 to 2.56 m2 and with sheet
resistances from 77 to 1462 ohm/square prove the correctness of
this analysis. In addition, practical rules to locate and orient the
transceivers are given. Prototype transceivers connected to a
plane with one conductive surface able to communicate at
100Kbit/s at a distance of 2m are described.
