A novel compact tri-band printed antenna for WLAN and WiMAX applications is presented. The proposed antenna consists of a modified rectangular slot, a pair of symmetrical inverted-L strips, and a Y-shaped monopole radiator with a meandering split-ring slot. Tuning the locations and the sizes of these structures, three distinct current paths can be produced at three independent frequency bands, respectively. Based on this concept, a prototype of the tri-band antenna is further fabricated and measured. The experimental and numerical results show that the antenna has impedance bandwidth (for return loss less than 10 dB) of 430 MHz (2.33-2.76 GHz), 730 MHz (3.05-3.88 GHz), and 310 MHz (5.57-5.88 GHz), which can cover both the WLAN 2.4/5.8-GHz bands and the WiMAX 2.5/3.5-GHz bands.
