Rachid Dakir, Ahmed Mouhsen


This research presents the development and conception of a new compact grounded coplanar waveguide fed slotted rectangular planar antenna with a multi-frequency band for radio frequency identification data (RFID) reader applications which is based on the antenna mono-band frequency to use for a various applications RFID to support a different operating range. The optimized of the final prototype designing operates a multiple frequency bands ranging from 0.7-1.1 GHz, 2.2-2.5 GHz and 5.4-6 GHz for 0.9/2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz RFID operation bands which is adapted from ultra-high frequency band (0.9 GHz) to microwave frequency band (2.4-5.8 GHz) RFID systems. This antenna is implemented and printed on a FR4 substrate with a size of 30×50×1.6 mm3. The novel prototype includes of a radiator rectangular patch with a symmetrical slot and a U-slot with I-stub on ground plan. The principles parameters of the antenna have been studied optimized and miniaturized by using a two simulators CST Microwave Studio and advanced design system (ADS) to validate the simulation results before the planar antenna realization. The final structure is achieved and validated of the results measurement. Experimental results show that the proposed antenna with a small size has good and stable radiation and thus promising for a various RFID applications.
