Portable computing devices such as laptops, palmtops, tabs, Smartphone and even the conventional PC are connected to internet via mostly wireless links as the fashion of wireless fidelity grows. Among the present technologies for such devices WLAN and Wi-Fi are famous. USB dongles still play a vital role. But one major challenge regarding the antenna design is to comply with a very small volume available and sometimes should also allow multiband operation. In this paper, the authors present a dual-band Wi-Fi compact planar IFA-based antenna design for a low-cost USB dongle application.
