In this paper, a novel low profile F-inverted compact antenna (FICA) is presented. A prototype dielectric loaded FICA has been built and measured through the communication range of custom-integrated application-specific WSN elements at 916 MHz. The design is low profile, small volume and is suitable for WSN. The results presented in this paper indicate a promising potential for the effective use of the novel FICA in WSN where 3-dimensional integration and size reduction are top requirements.
