PIFA–Top-Loaded-Monopole Antenna With Diversity Features for WBAN Applications

Abstract

A miniaturized diversity antenna dedicated to wireless body area network (WBAN) applications is described. The combination of a planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) and a top-loaded monopole yields distinct patterns fitting the different natures of the received waves. The strong isolation observed between the broadside and endfire ports is an important feature… (More)
