Abstract


In this paper, a hybrid of T-dipole and quasi-Yagi antenna is presented for using in dual-band Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) access point. The antenna is made up of combination of T-dipole and quasi-Yagi antenna structures, which are distinctly designed to operate at 2.4 and 5.5 GHz frequency bands. A simply integrated balun that consists of a curved microstrip line and a circular slot to allow broadband characteristic is used to feed the antenna. The final antenna design presents measured bandwidths (RL ≤ − 10 dB) of 2.35 – 2.55 GHz and 4.30 – 6.56 GHz which cover completely the two bands of WLAN. Simulated and measured results of peak gain and radiation patterns in both E- and H-plane validate potential of the design.
