Abstract

A novel dual branch multiband compact slotted antenna for digital broadcasting, wireless and sub 6 GHz 5G is presented. Antenna achieves multiband characteristics at (750–790 MHz) Digital broadcasting, (1.41–1.45 GHz) wireless medical telemetry, (2.10–2.14 GHz) Universal Mobile Telecommunication Service (UMTS), (3.44–3.51 GHz) WiMAX/sub 6 GHz 5G, (3.80–3.87 GHz) Sub 6 GHz 5G, (5.17–5.20 GHz) wireless local area network (WLAN) and (5.97–6.38 GHz) fixed satellite communication by introducing slots in the form of inverted U and E shape having varied branch lengths and full ground plane. The antenna has an overall size of 30 × 30 × 1.6 mm3. The proposed antenna achieves compact operation along with an omnidirectional radiation pattern having gain and efficiency in the range over 1.1 dBi and 78% for the proposed frequency bands. The antenna is fabricated after optimizing the geometrical dimensions where measured results match well with simulated ones.
