Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A printed compact size folded inverted-F antenna with simple configuration for mobile handset operating within the global system for mobile communication/personal communication system/digital communication system bands is initially proposed.To additionally cover the wireless local-area network frequency spectrum at 2.4 GHz, a narrow stub is protruded from the printed shorting wall. The excitation of these operating bands with desirable bandwidth is achieved by feeding a 50-ω microstrip line to the folded radiating element through a via hole.
