Abstract

5-GHz band have been used for wireless local area network (WLAN) application such as IEEE802.11a/b/g. For next generation WLAN system, IEEE802.11n with multiple input multiple output (MIMO) option has been ratified. Since multi-antenna will be required, an antenna should be small. To satisfy these requirements, many researches on small antenna have been conducted. A tapered meander line antenna was designed at 2.55GHz[1]. A printed meander-line antenna was designed at 2.4 GHz band using FR-4 substrate[2]. A multi-band meander line antenna was designed[3]∼[5]. Radiation efficiencies were improved by applying folded configurations to a meander line antenna for UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) tags[6]. However, only a few researches of small antenna that can directly connect to 50Ω devices were conducted at 5-GHz band. In this paper, we propose a novel 3-stacked meander line antenna (MLA) with open-ended and short-ended structure using multi-layered organic substrates for 5-GHz band. Generally, electrical small antenna has low input resistance. Applying well-known folded structure, we design 3-stacked structure in the multilayered substrate to increase input resistance. Return loss, radiation pattern, and actual gain are evaluated. Then we show the 3-stacked MLA has enough potential being used as a 5-GHz band small antenna.
