A Compact Wideband Two-Arm-Antenna for Mobile Phones
MetadataShow full item record
A compact film type antenna capable of generating two wide resonant modes for covering the AMPS/GSM bands and the DCS/PCS/UMTS bands for mobile phones is proposed. The antenna consists of two superimposed radiation arms which can support two resonant modes by themselves. The frequency range of a resonant mode generated by one of the arm is arranged to differ a little with the corresponding mode of the other, at the fundamental and higher-order modes. As a result, the bandwidths at both of the resonant modes are significantly enhanced. The antenna has a compact dimension of 5 x 15 x 40 mm3 and covers five bands of AMPS/GSM/DCS/ PCS/UMTS for a VSWR less than 2.5:1. It shows fairly good omnidirectional radiation patterns and high gains over 0 dBi in the azimuthal plane, at all the operating bands.
