Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 51, 131-137, 2014
Abstract
In this paper, a compact asymmetric coplanar strip (ACS)-fed printed monopole antenna for tri-band WLAN/WiMAX applications is presented. The proposed antenna is composed of a circular-arc-shaped stepped monopole with dual operating frequencies at 2.4/5.7 GHz and a simple circular-arc-shaped strip with the third operating frequency at 3.5 GHz. The three resonant frequencies of the antenna can be controlled by adjusting the geometries and the sizes of the stepped monopole, the strip and the ground plane. The antenna occupies a very compact size of 22.1×12 mm2 including the ground plane, has nearly omnidirectional radiation characteristics and reasonable gain in the operating bands. The simple feeding structure, compactness and uniplanar design make it easy to be integrated within the portable device for wireless communications.
