A Low Profile Penta-Band Antenna for Portable Devices Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2016 IEEE. Recent years have seen a rapid growth of portable wireless communication systems. Limited form factor and operation at multiple frequencies of these devices require novel solutions of efficient embedded antennas. It has increased the demand of microstrip patch antennas due to their inherent properties of being low profile, simple design, small size and ease of fabrication and integration. Miniaturisation requirements have seen rise of multiband patch antennas. This paper presents the design and analysis of a novel multiband microstrip patch antenna. The antenna consists of a rectangular slot with two E-shaped stubs on both of its sides. An inverted T-shaped stub is present on the upper side of the slot while an I-shaped stub is there on the bottom side. A T-shaped feeding line feeds the antenna. The slot, stubs and feed collectively produce five frequency bands centred at 1.5 GHz, 2.2 GHz, 3.1 GHz, 4.2 GHz and 5.3 GHz for LTE/4G/5G, WiBro/WiMax, Satcomm and WLAN applications. The antenna offers small size, good impedance bandwidth and high gain at all operating frequencies.
