Abstract : A multiservice radio-frequency identification (RFID) antenna with wideband axial ratio (AR) response around 2.4 GHz is presented in this study. This antenna offers dual band operation. The prototype follows a configuration constituting a driven element (radiator) and a parasitic element. The first band offers a voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) bandwidth (3:1) of 183 MHz (0.85–1.04 GHz). The VSWR bandwidth (3:1) for the second band is 2.77 GHz (2–4.77 GHz). It also offers a 3 dB AR bandwidth of 1.1 GHz (2.1–3.2 GHz). The 2:1 VSWR bandwidth of 0.9 GHz (2.1–3 GHz) and cross-polarisation in the second band makes this antenna suitable for 2.4 GHz RFID reader applications. The other services supported by the proposed antenna include global system for mobile communication (0.88–0.96 GHz), long-term evolution (2.3–2.4 GHz), wireless fidelity (2.4–2.5 GHz), bluetooth low energy (2.4 GHz) and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (3.5 GHz). To extract the multiservice characteristics, it is necessary to integrate this antenna to a handheld computing platform. For assessing the performance in such a platform, the prototype is optimised and merged with a larger ground plane of size 170 mm × 130 mm and studied in the course of this study.
