PIFA can be considered as a kind of linear Inverted F Antenna (IFA) with the wire radiator element replaced by a plate to expand the bandwidth. This prototype is based on designing and analysis of size optimized Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) with L bend element, accommodated on a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) for mobile handsets and operating at 2.68GHz.This antenna have a principle advantage of reduce size, low cost manufacturing and high bandwidth utility. Different parametric analysis has been performed with the handset dimension of about 100x40 mm. The antenna design and simulations are done using HFSS.
