Abstract

In this paper a low profile antenna is presented for wideband communication applications. The presented design is consists of an I-shape driven strip and a rectangular ground strip with an open slot in the middle and steeped lower portion. Measured result demonstrates that the achieved operating band of the proposed antenna has the potential to cover Global Star Satellite Phones (1.61-1.63 GHz, uplink), Advanced Wireless Systems (1.71-1.76 GHz, 2.11-2.17 GHz), DCS (1710-1880 MHz), GSM (1800MHz), DCP (1.88-1.90 GHz), DCS-1900/PCS/PHS (1850-1990MHz), WCDMA/IMT-2000 (1920-2170MHz), UMTS (1920-2170 MHz), LTE bands (FDD LTE bands 1-4, 9-10, 15-16, 23-25, 33-37, 39). The designed antenna possessed a very small size of 0.35λ0 × 0.027λ0 at the lowest frequency (S11 ≤ -10dB) and achieved good gain, exhibits stable radiation patterns which make it suitable for handheld communication devices.
