A Compact Nine-Band Frequency Reconfigurable Antenna for LTE/WWAN/WLAN Handset Applications

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 63, 29-36, 2016
Abstract
A frequency reconfigurable antenna suitable for handset is proposed in this research. The antenna structure includes an inverted-L shaped monopole and two meandered shorting strips. A wide high frequency band is excited from the inverted-L shaped strip monopole by direct feeding, and then the low and middle frequency bands are excited from two meandered shorting strips. Furthermore, a PIN switch diode is added at the end of shorting strip1 to implement the frequency reconfigurable property. The antenna was fabricated on an FR4 substrate and with a volume of only 9×50×5 mm3. It can cover the operation bands of LTE700/2300/2500, GSM850/900/1800/1900, UMTS2100, and WLAN2400. The detailed considerations and analyses of the design are studied in this paper.
