Abstract:

Wireless communication technology has experienced exponential growth over the past years. The growth of technologies has led to increased demand for the antenna, which could serve for different wireless applications. Reconfigurable antennas are the subject of study in many researches as they play an important role in smart and adaptive systems in wireless networks. Reconfigurable antenna provides an advantage of combining multiple functions in a single antenna. Reconfigurable antennas are able to dynamically modify its frequency and radiation properties. Different reconfiguration techniques are used to modify the properties of an antenna. There are popular due to its low cost, compact size, and light weight. Various papers on frequency reconfigurable antenna are studied, and a comparative study is presented.

Keywords:

Reconfigurable Antenna, Reconfiguration Techniques, Switches, Microstrip Patch, Wireless Networks.
