Abstract

In this paper, a multi-band ceramic chip antenna for WLAN(Wireless LAN) applications is designed. The design target is to obtain 0 dBi of coverage gain with omni directional radiation pattern. The antenna is fabricated using Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic(LTCC) technology. The size of the chip antenna is $2.2{\times}9.65{\times}1.02$mm. The measured antenna gain is 1 dBi at 2.44 GHz and 0.5 dBi at 5.5 GHz. The omni directional radiation pattern for the two operating bands is obtained. The measured bandwidth(S11=-10 dB) are 90 MHz at 2.44 GHz and 1280 MHz at 5.5 GHz respectively
