Analyzing the Influential Parameters of Planar Inverted F Antenna for Mobile Handset

Jacob Abraham, Dr. Thomaskutty Mathew


Microstrip antennas have attracted a lot of attention
due to rapid growth in communications area. Several patch designs with single feed, dual frequency operation have been proposed recently. This paper tries to explain the limitation of microstrip antennas in multiband operations and also explains the need of having planar inverted F antenna. The papers analysis the importance of variations in dimensions of planar inverted F antenna. Simulations are done to understand the operational changes that occurs due to slight variations in antenna dimensions. From the study it can be
understand that a slight variation in dimension of any key parameter will influence the working of mobile hand set.
