Garcia Zuazola, Ignacio Julio, Batchelor, John C. (2009) Compact Multiband PIFA Type Antenna. Electronics Letters, 45 (15). pp. 768-769. ISSN 0013-5194. (doi:10.1049/el.2009.1236) (KAR id:23276)


A small volume multiband planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA)with an electrically unconnected multi-strip ground plane is presented. The proposed antenna is low cost and easily fabricated, operates over a wide range of mobile communication standards with 3.57:1 and 2.32:1 VSWR at 0.89-2.48 and 3.1-10.6 GHz, respectively.
