A Multiband PIFA with a Slot on the Ground Plane for Wireless Applications

Seyed Ehsan Hosseini, Amir Reza Attari, and Aref Pourzadi
Abstract—In this paper, we present a new configuration of planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) for mobile communication devices. Simulated results demonstrate that the new configuration covers DCS/PCS/UMTS/WiBro/Bluetooth/S-DMB/WiMax/WLAN frequency bands. Simulated return loss of the proposed antenna is acceptable over all the mentioned frequency bands. Overall size of the proposed design is 40 mm×21 mm×5 mm on a 100-mm-long chassis. In designing the PIFA, we propose a slot on the ground plane for increasing bandwidth at about 2 GHz that around of this frequency, there are many wireless communication bands. The antenna is simply printed on an inexpensive FR4 of 0.8-mm thickness and dielectric constant of 4.4. Structural dimensions of the proposed antenna are optimized by using HFSS. Details of the multiband PIFA characteristics are presented and studied.

Index Terms—Handset antenna, multiband, planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA), slot.
