Design of Planar Inverted -F Antenna for Wireless Applications
The design of single feed dual band PIFA operating at 2.25and 3.546 GHz is presented. Two dimensional Method Of Moments (MOM) electromagnetic simulator, IE3D version: 12, is used in the design simulation of this dual band antenna. The results exhibit a proper operation of the antenna in terms of return loss, bandwidth, efficiency, gain at both bands. ISM, Bluetooth, Wi-max, IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, 802.16e, WiFi are the most important applications within the above mentioned frequency bands. Simulation tool, based on the method of moments (ZELAND IE3D version 12.0) has been used to analyze and optimize the antenna. The measured and simulated results are presented and all are acceptable to the standard antennas.
