monopole exciter antenna for slim laptop with full metal cover

What is it about?

The exciter antenna comprises a feeding strip and a matching strip that form a two-branched monopole structure. A small antenna size of 35 × 8 mm2 enables installation in the hinge slot region between the upper metal cover and the base metal cover of a slim laptop.

Why is it important?

The proposed exciter antenna can be integrated with the metal surroundings (metal covers and metal hinges) to enhance the operating bandwidth and thus cover the long-term evolution/wireless wide area network band with high radiation efficiency.
