Small C-Patch Antenna for Portable Digital Television Receivers

pdf PDF



In this paper a small c-patch antenna is designed and simulated. The antenna is compatible with Digital High-Definition Television frequency assignment in North America and it is able to be used in portable cellular units. The size of the designed antenna is less than the corresponding rectangular or circular patches. Besides, the c-patch antenna can be easily tunable in order to select the resonant frequency, and the matching impedance of the antenna can be changed by setting the feeding position. The performance of the antenna and its electrical features were evaluated using the HFSS software and, the results are presented here; where antenna gain, radiation patterns and other parameters were employed.
