Design of a wideband Planar Inverted F-Antenna (PIFA) for Wireless Communication Devices

Authors(3) :-Raju R. Rathwa, Dr. Nirali A. Kotak, Nikita Tarpara

In this paper a low profile and wideband Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) for wireless communication device like cell phone is presented. The antenna shows a wide range of frequency from 1.54 GHz to 2.47 GHz and with improved impedance matching covering GPS, DCS, PCS, 3G, 4G and WLAN/Bluetooth bands with VSWR less than 2. The size of top patch of the proposed antenna is 25 x 15 x 0.07 mm3, height of the path from the ground plan is 4mm which makes it compact and a coming candidate for wireless communication devices. The antenna is designed and simulated using ANSYS v17 High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) Software and shows improve gain with Omni-directional radiation pattern.
