balun dipole antenna microstrip transmission line fourth generation mobile communications
A wideband dipole antenna for the fourth generation(4G)mobile communications is designed.Utilizing impedance load of parasitic strips,a balun which can transform an unbalanced signal into a balanced signal is realized; transmission line between the antenna arms and the balun is designed to achieve the impedance matching; the radiation current path flowing in the arms is extended; a new resonance point emerge and bandwidth of the antenna is widened.Simulated and experimental results of return loss(S11)are in good agreement in 2~3 GHz,and the frequency range with S11 of below -10 dB covers six service bands of 4G.Simulated and experimental results of radiation patterns within the frequency range also show a good radiation performance of the dipole antenna significantly.
