A compact two-port diversity/MIMO antenna with dual band-notch characteristics for ultra wideband (UWB) applications is presented in this paper. The antennas exhibit a good impedance match over frequency band of 3.1 GHz-12 GHz, while exhibiting high isolation. Enhanced isolation is achieved with a decoupling structure having circular slots. The decoupling structure provides isolation of more than 20 dB for whole UWB spectrum. By introducing U-shaped slot in the main radiator and horizontal stubs in ground plane, band-notch characteristic is achieved in proposed MIMO design. Two notches are achieved at 5.150-5.825 GHz (WLAN) and 7.25-7.75 GHz (downlink of X-band satellite). The antenna is miniaturized having dimensions of 22mm × 36mm. The results suggests that the proposed diversity/MIMO antenna design can be suitable for portable UWB applications.

OtherThe 10th International Conference on Signal Processing and Communication Systems, ICSPCS’2016, follows the very successful ICSPCS'2014 and ICSPCS'2015. A major objective of the Conference will be to pursue the progression from communication and information theory through to the implementation, evaluation and performance improvement of practical communication systems using Signal Processing technology. The Conference is also planned to be a forum for presenting research into topics ranging from those of the physical layer to the application layer.
