Design and Simulation of Dual Band Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA) for Mobile Handset Applications
In this paper, dual band Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA) is presented for mobile handset applications at dual frequencies. PIFA is a flat structure, simple and easy to fabricate. The idea of U-shaped slot technique is introduced into the basic rectangular patch antenna for higher GSM frequency. The impedance bandwidth covers GSM 900 and GSM 1900 bands. The PIFA covers a bandwidth of 31.9MHz (0.88-0.911GHz) or about 3.5% with respect to the resonance frequency at 0.89GHz.
