Our tpms based project need to add NFC circuit to wake up Microcontroller (CC2541). We are using Premo antenna for NFC.
Output of antenna passes through 137217 this circuit. So far we could able to wake up uC in max.2cm distance. We have to improve this distance.

Are you saying that through this spiral does an electric current pass (ie the wiring is part of some circuit consuming power), or is it just a helical-like antenna ?

I think the diagram you show is quite primitive. The antenna will influence the transmitted frequency. It would be better to use a buffer transistor at the output of the oscillator (repeater on emitter maybe). I don't think you need to change from bipolar to FET.

I'm not acquainted with CST, but in HFSS you cannot do that (as far as I know). You need to fit the equivalent circuits from the Microstrip antennas chapter in Balanis book (probably two RLC tanks regarding the two radiating edges) and then tune it using for example ADS, until it fits the resonances obtained in CST or HFSS.

Go only with the printed antenna. The worse printed inverted-F would work better than any chip antenna.
The only thing that an inverted-F antenna needs to work well, is a good ground plane (which can be the metal shield of your circuit) and spend little time on tuning.

it is a mixer. It is probably a homodyne radar receiver of some sort. It sends out RF from a transmit antenna. Simultaneously, it sends a copy to one port of this "mixer" called the "local oscillator port". When the return bounces back from the ground, it is received by an antenna and input to the "RF Port" of the mixer. The resultant is a low

So you just need to do Q spoiling? How fast does the coil energy need to ring down?
I'm guessing that you're seeing inconsistent behavior because the switching isn't synchronous with the phase of the antenna current. Ideally you would switch on exactly when the coil current is at zero, but that means the capacitor voltage will be at its maximum, s

This is true, if in the front of the receiver it's a gain antenna for sure is no necessary an amplifier before the mixer, even if the schematic use a passive mixer (with no gain).
But in most cases people use wire antennas with no gain, but some loss from the feeder, so a simple amplifier will improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the receiver.
