Design and Simulation of a PIFA Antenna for the Use in 4G Mobile Telecommunications Networks
In this paper, the authors describe the design and simulation by HFSS simulator of a probe-fed and multi-band Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) for the 4G mobile networks. The antenna works in 8 bands. Five bands are auctioned by FCC for 4G (LTE and WiMax) such 710 MHz, 1900 MHz (PCS), 2.3 GHz (WCS band), 3.65 GHz (rural 4G) and 5.8 GHz (FCC unlicensed band). The antenna allows working around 910 MHz ISM band. The GPS signal can be received in GPS L2 band around the frequency 1575 MHz. The antenna offers also a wideband around 8.62 GHz.
