Novel Edge Fed Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA) for LTE High Band Applications


In this paper an edge fed planar inverted F antenna (PIFA) for LTE high band applications. The proposed antenna covers wider bandwidth from 2.78GHz to 3.94 GHz. Edge feed mechanism is used in the proposed structure by which wider bandwidth is achieved. The dimension of patch is 14×16mm2 and of ground plane is 36×16mm2. The dimension of patch, shorting plate, feeding plate are optimized using CST software to get optimum results and is presented in this paper. As this antenna is very compact in profile, has good performance, low cost and light weight, due to all these advantages it is suitable and can be easily incorporated as an internal antenna in mobile phones and in other portable device.
