Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA) for Mobile Communication: A Review

Namita ., Dishant Khosla


Abstract: Nowadays, most of the portable wireless devices requires low profile antennas to be incorporated in the device body. Planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) is one of the most popular antennas used in wireless devices due to its advantages. In this paper a brief literature study is performed on the planar antennas designed for 4G LTE bands. Some of the MIMO antenna systems are also discussed. The study reveals several interesting techniques to achieve good antenna and MIMO performance.

Keywords: Planar inverted-F antenna, 4G LTE, wireless devices, MIMO, mobile communication
