A small ultr-thin tri-band Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) is presented. The proposed antenna consists of slotted radiated parts supported by shorting walls and a ground plane. Intensive investigations are carried out in this paper to show that the ground plane and the antenna locations have insignificant effect on the performance of the antenna while the physical height of the radiated parts can be more significant. The radiated parts occupied a total size of 26 × 25.6 × 3.57 mm3. It designed… CONTINUE READING
