Abstract

In this paper, a reconfigurable folded slot antenna with Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) configuration is reported. Two orthogonal antennas are used to form the MIMO antenna system for better isolation. The proposed antenna system is designed, simulated and fabricated on a flexible substrate to be used for conformal structures. A p-i-n diode is integrated to each element of the MIMO system. When the p-i-n diode is OFF, the antenna is dual-band at 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz. When the p-i-n diode is ON, the antenna is single band at 2.4 GHz. The proposed MIMO antenna system works for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) applications.
