UWB PIFA Antenna for Simplified Transceivers

Garcia Zuazola, Ignacio Julio, Batchelor, John C., Elmirghani, J.M.H., Gomes, Nathan J. (2010) UWB PIFA Antenna for Simplified Transceivers. IET Electronics Letters, 46 (2). pp. 116-118. ISSN 0013-5194. (doi:10.1049/el/2010.2410) (KAR id:24928)


A planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) with an input match designed to offer the capability of a front-end bandpass filter in mobile communication transceivers is presented. The proposed antenna is low cost, easily fabricated, and operates in the unlicensed lower band (3.168– 4.752 GHz) of the ultra-wideband (UWB) communication standard with a 3.57:1 VSWR. It is demonstrated that the antenna possesses a radiation pattern with good front-to-back ratio and shows acceptable impedance matching in proximity to large ground planes making it suitable for applications such as in-vehicle communications.
