A capacitively loaded planar inverted-F antenna is studied. The finite difference time domain (FDTD) method is used to model the antenna. It is found that the capacitive load reduces the resonance length from λ/4 to λ/8. Using a capacitive feed, a match at 50Ω is obtained with a 5% bandwidth. Experimental verification is also provided.
