Cellphone Antenna Design - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hello out there,

While I am not an antenna designer, I would be quite interested in a brief tutorial on how the metal patterns for the multi-band cellphone antennas are determined.

Reading through a textbook would just discourage me. I am hoping one of you bright gents can provide for this forum a "Cellphone Antenna Design for Dummies" briefing on just how you manage to make such bewildering-looking, 3-dimensional antennas work so well.

Surely I am not the only one curious about these marvelous antennas. Someone had to ask, so it might as well have been me.


Cheers,
Ralph Z.
