Cpw-fed slot antenna for mimo system applications


A compact CPW-fed slot antenna is proposed for wireless local area networks (WLAN) applications in IEEE 802.11b/g/a systems. The measured results of the fabricated antenna show that the impedance bandwidths are 600 MHz from 2.1 to 2.7 GHz and 1500 MHz from 4.8 to 6.3 GHz, which cover all the desired operating bands. A multi-feed 4-element planar array was designed and simulated. It shows that the features of small size, uniplanar structure, good radiation characteristics, and small mutual coupling are promising for multi-input multi-output (MIMO) applications.
