The design of a reconfigurable single folded slot antenna is shown. Metal strips are used in the slot to manipulate the ground size around the slot, which yields to changing the slot's perimeter and thus changing the resonant frequency of the antenna. The design of a single folded slot antenna is first illustrated. Later, the design is modified to be reconfigurable. The resonant frequencies for the reconfigurable design are chosen to be applicable with the WLAN applications. The antenna design, simulation, and measurements are described. The simulated results both for the return loss and maximum gain agree with the measurements. The antenna has similar radiation patterns in both bands. The advantage of this design is that the length of the bias lines does not affect the antenna performance, thus making its design, feeding, and matching an extremely simple and low-cost procedure for antenna designers.
