A compact dual-band planar antenna developed for DCS-1900/PCS/PHS, WCDMA/IMT-2000, and WLAN applications is presented. The proposed antenna consists of a flared monopole with an additional sleeve for dual-band applications. The overall size of the antenna is 40 mm times 25 mm times 1.6 mm including the Finite Ground CPW feeding mechanism. The antenna operates in two frequency bands from 1.83 to 2.34 GHz and 3.23 to 5.76 GHz covering DCS-1900/PCS/PHS, WCDMA/IMT-2000, and WLAN bands. Simulation results along with measurements of the prototyped antenna are presented and discussed.
