Wideband indoor base station antenna (operating at 5.2 /5.8 GHz WLAN and 5.5 GHz WiMAX), loaded with artificial magnetic conductor (AMC), is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system. The MIMO system has sixteen elements, and each element has a pair of folded dipoles, fed by a coupling E-shape microstrip feedline. Periodical AMC surfaces are introduced underneath the dipole elements to achieve unidirectional radiation and low profile. They also contribute to antenna… CONTINUE READING
