Handset Antenna Design for Mobile Communication System
Monopole slot antenna is suitable for handset applications due to its simple planar structure. Besides that, it is compact, low cost, low profile and easy to manufacture. It also has wide bandwidth and omnidirectional charatriesticts. The monopole antenna is obtained by cutting monopole slot at the edge of the ground plane of the antenna. These slots operate as the radiating elements of the antenna. The objective of the project is to design a multiband planar monopole slot antenna. This design tool used is the Zeland IE3D software. The proposed antenna consists of two slots cut at the edge of a 100?40 mm ground plan. The antenna occupies an area of 50?40mm.
