Abstract

RF switches are integrated to the shorting straps of a stacked planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) to make a tunable PIFA. The L-Band switch yields 0.45-dB insertion loss (IL) and 10-dB isolation bandwidth (BW) of 40% at 1.5 GHz. The tunable PIFA yields 17.2% impedance BW at 744.7 MHz when varying numbers of upper radiating patch's shorting straps are connected to the ground electronically via PIN diode switches, and 20% BW at 1137 MHz when lower radiating patch's shorting straps are tuned. Thus an infinite combination of individual frequency tuning by shorting straps of the stacked patch PIFA is possible.
