Printed F-antenna

Image of the Printed-F antenna.

This antenna was requested by an Antenna Magus user and is typically used for wireless communication in the 2.4 GHz ISM band.

The structure is popular because of its small size and the fact that it can be integrated onto to the same printed circuit board as other electronics. The Printed-F antenna is similar to the conventional Inverted-F antenna except that the radiating element is not normal to the ground plane, but rather in the same plane as the ground plane.
