An internal planar tablet computer antenna having a small size of 12 × 35 mm2 printed on a 0.8-mm thick FR4 substrate for the WWAN operation in the 824-960 and 1710-2170 MHz bands is presented. The antenna comprises a driven strip, a parasitic shorted strip and a ground pad, all printed on the small-size FR4 substrate. For bandwidth enhancement of the antenna's lower band, the antenna applies a parallel-resonant spiral slit embedded in the ground pad, which generates a parallel resonance at about 1.2 GHz and in turn results in a new resonance occurred nearby the quarter-wavelength mode of the parasitic shorted strip. This feature leads to a dual-resonance characteristic obtained for the antenna's lower band, making it capable of wideband operation to cover the desired 824-960 MHz with a small antenna size. The antenna's upper band is formed by the higher-order resonant mode contributed by the parasitic shorted strip and the quarter-wavelength resonant mode of the driven strip and can cover the desired 1710-2170 MHz band. Details of the proposed antenna and the operating principle of the parallel-resonant spiral slit are presented.
