A Meandered Loop Antenna for LTE/WWAN Operations in a Smart Phone

Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 16, 147-160, 2010
Abstract
This paper presents a multiband meandered loop antenna for smart phone applications. The proposed antenna which features a meandered folded-loop generates two resonance modes in the LTE/GSM bands. The current distributions of the excited resonance modes are analyzed to investigate the mode characteristic. By using a capacitively coupled feed on the backplane, the impedance bandwidth is broadened to cover LTE/WWAN bands. The simulation performed in this research used a high frequency structure simulator (HFSS) to optimally design the antenna, and a practical structure was constructed for the test. Details of the various antenna parameters are presented and discussed in this paper.
