1. An implantable analyte sensor for measuring an analyte concentration in a host, the sensor comprising:

  • a sensor body substantially formed from a water vapor permeable material; and

    electrical components encapsulated within the sensor body, wherein the electrical components comprise RF circuitry and an antenna adapted for RF transmission from the sensor in vivo to a receiver ex vivo, wherein the RF circuitry is spaced a fixed distance from the sensor body so as to support a dielectric constant that enables RF transmission between the sensor in vivo to the receiver ex vivo.
