Abstract:
In this work, a compact planar dual-square ring (DSR) microstrip patch antenna is investigated to acquire dual-band resonance with dual-mode excitation for Wi-Fi/WLAN and 5G-NR based wireless applications. This dual-square ring geometry is employed on single layer dielectric, excited through EM coupling by using a quadrilateral feed patch, which offers massive flexibility in impedance matching for dual-band resonance with minimum coupling effects in common excitation and ground plane. This planar DSR structure shows the resonance at 2.4 GHz and 3.7 GHz frequency bands with bandwidths greater than 100 MHz and 200 MHz, respectively and a maximum gain response of 4.3 dBi with VSWR of <<2. Here the simulation results are verified through experimental results of the fabricated antenna. This proposed antenna design can be configured for Wi-Fi/WLAN application at 2.4 GHz in lower-order resonance mode (TM01) and for 5G-NR application by utilizing the fringing benefits of higher-order mode (TM10) at 3.7 GHz.
