A novel printed compact wide-band planar antenna for mobile handsets is proposed and analyzed in this paper. The radiating patch of the proposed antenna is designed jointly with the shape of the ground plane. A prototype of the proposed antenna with 30 mm in height and 50 mm in width has been fabricated and tested. Its operating bandwidth with voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) lower than 3:1 is 870-2450 MHz, which covers the global system for mobile communication (GSM, 890-960 MHz), the global positioning system (GPS, 1575.42 MHz), digital communication system (DCS, 1710-1880 MHz), personal communication system (PCS, 1850-1990 MHz), universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS, 1920-2170 MHz), and wireless local area network (WLAN, 2400-2484 MHz) bands. Therefore, it could be applicable for the existing and future mobile communication systems. Design details and experimental results are also presented and discussed.
