Abstract: 

The compact slotted antenna having offset feed radiating in the multi-frequency bands is proposed. The antenna geometry comprises of a vertical and horizontally coupled slotted structure at the top with a complete ground plane at the bottom to achieve the proposed application bands. The patch is patterned on the FR4 substrate having a dielectric constant of 4.4 and loss tangent of 0.008. The antenna has an overall dimension of 0.18λ × 0.15λ mm2 (f = 1.52 GHz) with offset fed which is optimized to achieve 50 Ω impedance matching. The proposed compact antenna resonates in pentaband frequency bands which includes 1.52–1.60 GHz for GPS (ISM band in India), 2.97–3.02 GHz for Radio frequency identification and detection, mobile communication, logistics, manufacturing, transportation and healthcare, 3.73–3.84 GHz for Amateur Fixed Mobile except aeronautical mobile (R), 4.42–4.52 GHz for radio communications, TransferJet USB Adapter (Toshiba Corporation), and 4.83–4.96 GHz for Aviation Private Land Mobile applications. The proposed antenna has demonstrated a decent gain ranging from 1.07 to 3.92 dBi having omnidirectional and bidirectional radiation patterns, hence, making it suitable for various wireless applications.
