Abstract

This project involves the design and computational analysis of a Planar Inverted-F Antenna at a resonant frequency of 850 MHz in an effort to investigate and optimize its performance in the LG Nexus 5 D820 smartphone. A three-dimensional, full-wave computational model of the antenna was created with HFSS and variations of different physical parameters were conducted. The data from HFSS was exported into ADS for analog circuit modeling. The modeling predictions were successfully tested with a designed and constructed antenna.
