dc.description.abstract Planar inverted F-antenna are playing an important role in wireless communication systems because of their many advantages like light weight, low profile, low cost, easy integration with planar structure and easy fabrication. The main objective of this thesis is to discuss the characteristics of PIFA antenna using different change of design parameters such as shortening plate width, ground plane width ground plane length, patch width, and patch length and height. The design issues include PIFA antenna dimensions, feeding techniques and various polarization mechanisms whereas the performance issues include voltage standing wave ratio, radiation pattern, directivity and specific absorption rate. In this thesis, both single element and four by four elements of PIFA antenna at Ka-band are designed using the CAD-FEKO simulation software. To design it, standard formulas are used to calculate different parameters of the antenna. The proposed antenna is designed to work at 28GHz frequency band and simulation results shows that 4.66 dB and 7.63dB of directivity for single element and four by four elements of PIFA antenna were attained respectively and also SAR values of 2.26w/kg for single element and 0.613w/kg for four by four elements design were attained. To achieve all the above results both single element and planar array of PIFA antenna were designed with micro-strip line feeding based on quarter wave impedance matching technique using CAD-FEKO simulation software. en_US
