The development of small integrated antennas plays a significant role in the progress of rapidly expanding wireless communication applications. This paper describes a novel dual-band planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) for wireless local area network applications. The proposed PIFA uses single feed only. A novel top-plate geometry, a U-shaped slot, is discussed. An example is given for this novel slot shape for frequency bands of 2.4 and 5.2 GHz. Simulation based upon the method of moments (MoM) is used to model the performance of the antenna. Comparisons with results measured on fabricated antenna structures are provided for simulations validation.
