A dual-band slotted trapezoidal inverted-F antenna for indoor WLAN communications
Journal article, 2016
This letter presents a new directional dual-band slotted trapezoidal inverted-F antenna (IFA) for indoor Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) applications. The dual-band performance can be obtained by tuning the lengths of the inner symmetrical trapezoidal slots and the outer trapezoidal arms in a nearly independent manner. The measured results show that the proposed antenna can provide two separate impedance bandwidths (return loss better than 10 dB) around 180MHz and 750MHz for 2.4/5.1-5.8 GHz WLAN bands, respectively. Good radiation performance and roughly constant in-band antenna directivities are also observed.
