Design and Implementation of Novel Nine-Shaped MIMO Antenna for LTE Applications
The microstrip antennas are increasing in demand for use in communication systems due to their compact size, light weight and cost effectiveness. In this paper, a tri-band novel nine-shaped two element monopole MIMO antenna is proposed for LTE applications. The antenna has symmetrical property. It is etched on an FR4 epoxy substrate with dielectric constant of 4.4 and transmission line feed is used to excite the antenna. It radiated for 0.550-1.3GHz, 4.3-5.1GHz and 6.9 to 7.3GHz LTE bands. The designed antenna is simulated using HFSS software and is fabricated and tested using network analyzer.
