Compact UWB band-notched antenna with integrated bluetooth for personal wireless communication and UWB applications
MetadataShow full item record
A compact band-notched UWB (Ultra-Wide Band) antenna with integrated Bluetooth is developed for personal wireless communication and UWB applications. The antenna operates at the UWB frequency band (3.1-10.6 GHz) as well as Bluetooth (2.4-2.484 GHz), with band-notch characteristics at the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) frequency band (5-6 GHz). A new technique of integrating Bluetooth within a UWB band-notched antenna is developed and analyzed. The UWB frequency band is realized by utilizing a conventional cylindrical radiating patch and a modified partial ground plane. The Bluetooth band is integrated using a miniaturized resonator with the addition of capacitors. Further, to mitigate the interference of the WLAN frequency band within the UWB spectrum, a conventional slot resonator is integrated within the radiator to achieve the task. The antenna is designed and fabricated, and its response in each case is provided. Moreover, the antenna exhibits a good radiation pattern with a stable gain in the passband. The present antenna is also compared to state-of-the-art structures proposed in the literature. The miniaturized dimensions (30 x 31 mm 2 ) of the antenna make it an excellent candidate for UWB and personal wireless communication applications.
