Small Size Planar Inverted-F Antenna for WiMAX Applications
Wireless communications have progressed very rapidly in recent years. The future technologies requires a small antenna which is also multiband so that different types of data can be transmitted avoiding multiple antenna. This work presents a small size Planner Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA), with a single feed which covers WiMAX (3.2-3.6GHz) and (5-5.8GHz) range. The proposed antenna has many advantages like compact size and wide operation bandwidth. The antenna portion of 20x15mm and the overall dimension 25x40mm can be easily applied in the USB dongle.
