Abstract

Fractal antennas have been well known for their multiband characteristics. A new approach to multifrequency re-configurable antennas using RF MEMS switches is presented here. Fractal antenna elements can be connected together using RF MEMS switches in order to achieve a larger number of resonances. The RF MEMS switches permit a controlled connectivity of sections of the antenna's conductive parts. This conductive coupling between the triangular elements provides clear multiple frequency operation with a single fractal antenna. The analysis and design principles are discussed and presented here.
