A wide-band/dual-band packaged antenna is proposed for wireless local-area network (WLAN) applications in the 5.15-5.35 GHz and 5.725-5.825 GHz frequency range. The antenna is internal to the housing of a personal digital assistant, such as a Palm organizer, and has the dimensions of 28 by 9 by 3 ram on an FR4 substrate. The antenna meets or exceeds the bandwidth requirements for the dual-band IEEE 802.11a WLAN applications (5.15-5.35 GHz and 5.725-5.825 GHz) within 2:1 voltage standing-wave ratio.
