Three-Port Pattern Diversity Antenna Module for 5.2 GHz Ceiling-Mounted WLAN Access Points
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 98, 57-67, 2020
Abstract
In this paper, a three-port pattern diversity antenna with a Fabry-Perot cavity (FPC) using a partially reflective surface (PRS) for 5.2 GHz Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) access points is proposed. The topology of three coaxial-fed circular patch antennas provides an initial beam tilt of 15˚. The PRS aperture, at a height of approximately λ/2, is then shaped in such a way for the antenna to radiate at 0˚, +25˚, -25˚, which results in total coverage of 90˚. The antenna system has an impedance bandwidth of 2% ranging from 5.16 GHz-5.25 GHz (90 MHz bandwidth), covering the IEEE 802.11a band, for a gain of 10 dBi throughout the band and across the ports. The shaped PRS structure provides a gain enhancement of 4.5 dB. The mutual coupling between any two ports in the three-port antenna system is less than 17 dB for a port-to-port distance of 0.67λ.
