Abstract

This paper presents a compact dual-band printed antenna for 2.4/5.2 GHz WLAN applications. The radiating elements of the proposed antenna are composed of rectangular split-ring elements and metallic loadings placed appropriately between the rings. The antenna size is very compact (22 \times 26 \times 1.6 mm), and it can be integrated easily with other RF front-end circuits. It is demonstrated that the proposed antenna can completely cover the required bandwidths of IEEE 802.11b (2.4-2.484 GHz) and IEEE 802.11a (5.15-5.35 GHz) with satisfactory radiation characteristics. Analysis and design of the proposed antenna was carried out with the Ansoft highfrequency structure simulator. The measurement results of the fabricated prototype antenna are in relatively good agreement with thesimulation results.
