Whitepaper: Conformal Shaped PIFAs for Mobile Communication Applications

by Centurion Wireless TechnologiesJan 01, 2008

Although the proposed semi-circular PIFA design has been done for iDEN/GPS, it can be used for other frequencies of interest. Through the choice of an unconventional configurations such as J-Shaped or T shaped, the potential advantage of introducing the steps within the slot to realize non uniformity of the slot width was proposed. The resulting slot structure with non-uniform width resembles a frequency selective surface and thus enhancing the performance of the antenna. This paper demonstrates the feasibility design of an embedded single feed multi band PIFA with out necessitating a supporting dielectric carriage.
