Tunable planar inverted-F antenna using rf MEMS switch for the reduction of human hand effect

In this paper, the tunable PIFA for the correction of impedance mismatch due to human hand effect has been developed. Metal-to-metal direct contact type RF MEMS switch has been used for tuning the resonance frequency of the capacitor loaded PIFA, which is piezoelectrically actuated with low actuation voltage. The characteristics of the tunable PIFA have… CONTINUE READING
