Abstract

In this paper, frequency reconfiguration of an antenna system is analyzed by means of the PIN diode as a switching element. A printed monopole antenna has been designed and fabricated by combining the PIN diode with RF choke inductors and current limiting resistors. According to both simulation and experimental results, the effect of PIN diode should be taken into consideration for the communication systems in which the electronic antenna reconfiguration is utilized such as cognitive radio.
