A Multiband Diversity Antenna System for Compact Mobile/Wireless Devices: Modeling and Performance Evaluation
Source: Hindawi Publishing
A novel compact multiband diversity antenna system appropriate for integration onto space-limited devices is presented. It comprises three pairs of printed fractal Minkowski and Koch monopole antennas which resonate in the 1.67-2, 2.3-2.56 and 4.55-5.55 GHz bands, respectively, supporting thus a large variety of wireless technologies for mobile and Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) applications. The operational characteristics of the antenna system were extracted by simulation using a Method-of-Moment- (MoM-) based electromagnetic field solver.
