Abstract

Antenna diversity is a well-known technique to enhance the performance of wireless communication systems. In order to create an antenna diversity system on a wireless device, two or more antenna elements could be placed in positions. However, it is difficult to implement multiple antennas on handheld terminal. A compact planar inverted-L diversity antenna for handheld terminals is provided. Three diversity antennas operating at 2.15 GHz are designed. The isolation is found to be better than 13 dB and the usable bandwidth is about 13% in measurement. The measured radiation patterns are obtained that the proposed diversity antenna attains 2 dBi gain.
