Recently, some practical requirements such as multiband operation and miniaturized size for current antenna design in wireless communication systems have attracted high attention. For short and long-range applications, many antenna designs suitable for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN: 2.4-2.483GHz, 5.15-5.35GHz and 5.725-5.85GHz) and Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX 2.5-2.69 GHz, 2.7-2.9 GHz, 3.3-3.8 GHz and 5.25- 5.85 GHz) operation have been studied. The printed planar wide-slot antennas based on more than two resonant modes to generate a wider operating band were initially proposed to meet the applications for both WiMAX and WLAN systems.
