Abstract

Reconfigurable micro-strip patch antenna with a U-slot is proposed for wearable fabric applications. Fabric substrate is used for the proposed antenna for manufactured and designed to steer the beam directions at the operation frequency of 7. 0 GHz. For design the proposed antenna the U-shaped slot and a proximity-coupled feeding technique are applied. By configuring two artificial switches between the proximity-coupled feed and the antenna patch, the antenna is given three beam directions (S0, S1, and S2). The maximum beam directions are steerable in the -plane ( ?= 0 , 30 , and 331 , respectively. The gains at the maximum beam directions of S0, S1, and S2 were 6. 62, 6. 69, and 6. 11 dBi, respectively. The HPBWs of S0, S1, and S2 were 60 , 55 , and 65 , respectively, and the overall HPBW of the three states was 115 .
