Multiband Reconfigurable Microstrip Patch Antenna

Authors(2) :-Hemantkumar Mane, V. U. Deshmukh

Reconfigurable Antenna is an alternative to multi-band Antenna. Different techniques are used to achieve multi-band and wideband operation of antenna. Reconfigurable antenna has a potential to add some functionality to mobile communication. A reconfigurable antenna is another solution to achieve multiple bands by switching ON and OFF some part of the antenna. To allow the operating frequency and the bandwidth to be reconfigurable switching components are normally used. In this paper microstrip patch-slot antenna is capable of frequency switching at different frequency bands from Frequency range. RF p-i-n diode is used for the switching purposes. The main aim of this paper is to provide multiband functionality form a single band frequency just by optimizing the antenna structure.
