Design and Performance Analysis of a Flexible UWB Wearable Textile Antenna on Jeans Substrate

Mustafa Turkmen and Husnu Yalduz
Abstract—This paper presents the design and analysis of a compact and flexible textile antenna for wireless body-area network systems. The presented antenna operates at a frequency range of 2.2 GHz to 17 GHz and covers the UWB frequency band. The antenna is designed from a jeans textile substrate with attractive features such as flexible and low dielectric properties. Copper tape was used for the radiator patch and ground plane of the antenna. The dimensions of antenna are 45 mm x 60 mm x 1 mm. In this study, the UWB antenna successfully evaluated the return loss (S11) and radiation pattern parameters under the planar condition and various bending conditions. It has been observed that the simulation result values of the antenna are suitable for UWB WBAN applications under planar condition and different bend conditions.

Index Terms—Bend effect, textile antenna, wearable antenna.
