This paper presents a novel miniaturized tri-band antenna which can be used as a single element or as an element of a compact array in MIMO applications. Specifically, the tri-band MIMO antenna has been constructed and used, in arrays of two and four, in a laptop PCMCIA wireless LAN card. The size of the four element MIMO antenna array is 50 mm times 13 mm times 8 mm which translates to 0.4 lambda times 0.1 lambda times 0.07 lambda at 2.45 GHz. The antenna has a return loss lower than -10 dB in… CONTINUE READING
