Design and Parametric Simulation of a Miniaturized PIFA Antenna for the PCS Band
Abstract: This paper describes the design and simulation by HFSS simulator of a probe-fed Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) for the use in PCS band [1850 MHz - 1990 MHz]. A methodology based on parametric simulations (parameters are ground plan dimensions, height of radiating plate, feeding point position, shorting plate dimensions and positioning) was used to design optimized antenna. The simulation allowed the characterization of the designed antenna and the computing of different antenna parameters like S11 parameter, resonant frequency, SWR, bandwidth impedance in feeding point, gain, 2D and 3D diagram pattern, Fields distribution. The simulation results are interesting and respect the mean PCS requirements.
