Abstract

A new CPW-fed antenna with triple-band is presented for simultaneously satisfying wireless local area network (WLAN) and world interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) applications. The investigated antenna consists of a T-shaped monopole with a trapeziform ground plane and two parasitic elements to generate triple-band. The design methodology is outlined and the overall size is 32×15×1 mm3. This antenna was numerically designed using Ansoft HFSS simulation software package. The measured 10 dB bandwidth for return loss is from 2.35 to 2.71 GHz and 3.35 to 3.72 GHz and 4.9 to 6.1 GHz, covering all the 2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz WLAN bands and 2.5/3.5/5.5 GHz WiMAX bands.
