Compact Planar Inverted L-Antenna for Mobile Wimax Applications

Authors(2) :-Ardra George, J. Geetharamani

A highly compact and an optimized design of an inverted-L shaped printed monopole antenna with a circular ground plane is proposed. To make the designed antenna suitable for implementation it is embedded in FR-4 substrate and is presented. The antenna is designed to operate at 3.5GHz . It is suitable for mobile WiMAX applications with return loss (S11) <-10 Db. The size of the antenna is 30x11.36x1. The antenna design is simulated using the tool CAD FEKO 2014. The antenna design has good return loss and radiation characteristic in the required frequency band. The radiation pattern obtained from the proposed antenna is an omni-directional radiation pattern in the E and H plane over the frequency ranges.
