This paper presents a compact planar inverted–F antenna (PIFA) design for WLAN operation in portable devices. The proposed design has size of 8 x 21 mm and provides peak directive gain of 5.78dBi with the peak return loss of -33.89dB and input impedance of 50.28Ω. It covers a 10dB return loss bandwidth of 410MHz (2.37GHz – 2.789GHz). Its VSWR varies from 1.96 to 1.93 within the antenna return loss bandwidth. As the dimension of the proposed antenna is very small, the antenna is promising to be embedded within the different portable devices employing Wi–Fi applications. This paper includes the return loss as a function of frequency with varying the different parameters, VSWR, input resistance, radiation pattern and current distribution of the proposed antenna.
