MULTIBAND SLOT ANTENNAS FOR METAL BACK COVER MOBILE HANDSETS

By J. Zhong, R. M. Edwards, L. Ma, and X.-W. Sun

Full Article PDF (807 KB)

Abstract:
New multiband integrated slot antennas for mobile handsets are presented for GSM, DCS, PCS and WCDMA, GPS and WIFI 2.4 GHz. Prototypes, both simulated and measured, are realised in the metal back cover away from the hand. Perturbations due to tissue proximity are simulated using a CTIA compliant hand phantom.
