In wireless communication system, one of the unique challenges is the requirement for smaller and cheaper antenna design that becomes an important aspect in the deployment of wireless enabled products. To meet this challenge, we developed a simple, small, compact, low cost, and practical antenna targeted for 2.4 GHz (ISM Band) application. A detailed investigation on miniaturized microstrip planar new antenna design using a combination of proposed shorted patch and meandering method are

To ensure the precision, verification has been done, designs were fabricated, and measurements on return loss and impedance bandwidth were performed by using FieldFox RF Analyzer. In realizing the design, a study on the surface current is conducted by simulation in order to maintain the target resonance frequency, 2.45 GHz. The designs have resulted in 86.5% and 95.5% size reduction, in comparison with a conventional rectangular patch antenna which is used as benchmark in this work. The performance of the proposed antenna is proven to be better than other existing miniaturization techniques such as the meandered line antenna (MLA) at the same size. Further improvement on radiation characteristic is also achieved by implementing Suspended Plate Antenna (SPA) approach. From the significant size reduction obtained, the concept used in this work would be suitable for cost centric products requiring small sized wireless module.
