Design and Optimization of Integrated Bluetooth and UWB Antenna With Dual Band-Notched Functions
A compact microstrip-fed printed planar integrated Bluetooth and Ultra WideBand (UWB) monopole antenna with dual band-notched characteristics in the 3.5 GHz WiMAX and 5.2/5.8GHz WLAN band is presented. The proposed antenna design consists of the semicircular ring patch and partial ground plane. The extra band (2.33-2.5GHz) for Bluetooth is obtained by adding the T-shaped strip at the top of the patch. Additionally, two L-shaped arc slots in patch and two U-shaped circular slots in partial ground plane are etched to reject the WiMAX and WLAN bands.
