Design of C-Shaped Microstrip Patch Antenna for Various Wireless Applications Using HFSS

Authors(2) :-S. Kannadhasan, Dr. R. Nagarajan

Usage of cellular phones for long duration generates heat which leads to reduced data/talk time. To overcome this constrain supply voltage for the RF power amplifier in CDMA/WCDMA cellular phones is controlled which can also improve PA efficiency. For bandwidth enhancement a C Shaped antenna is used which is fed by mini-coaxial cable along with a thin printed ground-line that protrudes from ground-plane to be a balance-feed structure. Prototype of the antenna with length 25 mm, height 30 mm and width 5 mm has been designed. The human’s hand effect on impedance bandwidth and radiation characteristics of the antenna is studied. A prototype is designed to cover hex-band: CDMA (8.24–8.94 GHz), GSM (8.8–9 GHz), DCS (1.71–1.88 GHz), PCS (1.85–1.99 GHz) and WCDMA (1.92–2.17 GHz), GPS (2.18-2.2 GHz). To verify the theoretical work, experimental results are shown.
